If you've ever wanted to live in a small, beautiful ocean side New England community with great-family-friendly presence, New London is an excellent place to consider for your next relocation. Located between New York and Boston along the Atlantic coastline, there is a quaint atmosphere that is marked by beautiful residential spots, a revamped waterfront and vibrant downtown scene.
Despite being small - the 2012 U.S. Census estimate found no more than 27,700 residents in New London - the city is quite urban and boasts a thriving multicultural community. According to City-Data, the cost of living in the area is just around 10 percent more than the U.S. average, which is impressive considering its location to two major metropolitan areas in New England. Both the population and median household income increased between 2000 and 2012, so New London should be an affordable place to call home.
Activities and attractions in New London
New London is completely immersed in U.S. maritime history, and there are many museums and attractions around town that commemorate the city's love for the sea. Fort Trumbull State Park is one such historic site that houses an 1850s coastal defense fort, which was once home to the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, but is now commemorative museum with two floors of exhibits as well as a 500-foot fishing pier.
The city is located along the Long Island Sound, which means that beachside activities are a must, especially in the summer. Canoeing, rafting and swimming are popular activities, but New London is best known for its superb deep sea harbor, so fishing and angling are common sports in town.
New London is also home to both Mitchell College and Connecticut College, so there is a deep dedication to education and the fine arts, which is noted by the Lyman Allyn Art Museum and several local galleries.
Moving to New London
It can be difficult to relocate to New London in a geographic sense, as the city is located right alongside the ocean and harbor. However, both U.S. Highway 1 and Interstate 95 run straight through town, so services from Allied Van Lines, such as vehicle transportation, shouldn't be a problem for a New London moving company. If you need extra assistance with your move, an Allied agent can also set you up with services like electronics or furniture assembly once you arrive. The nearest major airport to New London is Tweed New Haven Regional Airport, if you are flying into town.
