As local agent, I am very involved in the school system. Our schools are amazing. It really is one of the biggest reasons people choose to live in Glastonbury. Our resale value remains strong with schools being a key factor in why people choose to live in Glastonbury. There are six elementary schools, one 6th grade only school and a 7th and 8th grade school in addition to our high school. We also have a magnet school featuring a public planetarium. At the high school, our football stadium has lights - lots of fun to catch a Friday night game under the lights in the fall!
Glastonbury has so much to offer. From the local farms and farm stands in rural South Glastonbury to the hustle and bustle of Main Street. We have a strong Parks and Rec department. I always tell my clients that are moving into the area that you can always find something to do.
"There’s nothing like waking up on a typical New England day in the quiet of your home and neighborhood."
There’s nothing like waking up on a typical New England day in the quiet of your home and neighborhood. There’s not much traffic in Glastonbury, which means you can sit and enjoy your morning cup of coffee while gazing out into your wooded yard uninterrupted. If you have children, you’ll most likely be involved in one of Glastonbury’s numerous sports of recreation programs. We have lots of sporting fields and youth sports programs. Once you’ve dropped the kids off for activities it’s time for that 2nd cup of coffee and there’s no better place than So. G Coffee Roasters on Main Street in South Glastonbury or Daybreak Coffee on Main Street in Glastonbury center. Both places give you that small-town, friendly neighborhood feel; and great coffee! For a larger morning meal, try the award-winning breakfast and lunch spot, Ken’s Corner – located on Hebron Ave.
Glastonbury has endless great restaurants in town; anything from Asian to Italian! The award-winning J. Gilbert’s Wood-fired Steaks and Seafood never disappoints. Although not open for lunch, they open daily for dinner at 4pm. Other great dining includes Max Amore or Max Fish, 2 Hopewell, Sayulita, Sakura Garden, or Plan B Burger Bar. Our town has undergone a huge town center revitalization project over the years and we are now known far and wide for having some of the best places to dine.
If you are ever in the area; thinking about moving to this beautiful town, call me – I have a wonderful tour I can take you on. See my town through my eyes; and you will most definitely fall in love and want to move here!!
