Are you moving to Wolcott, Connecticut, and want to know what makes this town so great? In this episode of CT Life, I’m going to give you the top five reasons people love moving to Wolcott. We’ll talk about everything from lot size to affordability so you can get excited about your move.


Space And Location

There's a reason more and more people are moving here to Wolcott, Connecticut. The first reason is space. The average home that sold here in the last year has almost 38,000 square feet of yard. This gives you extra space to spread out away from your neighbors and relax.

Reason number two is the flexibility of getting to the city. You're within 30 miles of New Haven, 25 miles of Hartford, 125 miles of Boston, Massachusetts, and only 97 miles of New York City. This makes you close to everything.

Rural Living And Things To Do

The third reason people love moving to Wolcott is the rural feel. From the annual Wolcott Fair to the small town market’s fresh-cut meat and fresh-baked pastries, it's a throwback to how things used to be. And reason number four is that Wolcott has so much to do.

For example, the Woodtick Rec Center at 201 Nichols Road right off Route 69 is a great place to have fun. You can find a beach to go swimming, and there's a great pavilion to enjoy. There are also some other great things to do in Wolcott, including Farmingbury Hills Golf Course, Shebeen Brewing Company, and the Hillside Equestrian Meadows.

When you're in the Wolcott area, another must-see is Blackie’s Hot Dogs right on the Wolcott border. You have to stop and try one of their awesome hot dogs, a Connecticut tradition since 1928.

Affordable Living In Wolcott

The fifth reason people love moving to Wolcott is that it’s still very affordable. It has one of the lower mill rates in the area, affordably priced houses, and everything else that Wolcott has going for it. It’s easy to see why more and more people are putting Wolcott on the top of their lists for their home search.
