Money magazine has once again ranked (#73) Cheshire one of the best places to live in America.
"Because this charming, garden-filled town is near both New Haven (16 miles) and Hartford (26), residents can commute to either city--or work right here (there’s a small industrial sector). Though many towns are struggling financially these days, Cheshire boasts a triple-A credit rating. Schools are good, and affordable condos are available. The town’s Rails-to-Trails program has allowed the conversion of abandoned tracks; residents can now bike from Cheshire to New Haven, with plans to develop additional paths in the future."
