A premier location.
Our residents work hard, but they have fun, too. Middletown offers a variety of playful things to do, particularly river sports such as boating, sailing, wind-surfing, rowing and fishing. But there’s also skiing, snowboarding, swimming, golf, tennis, cycling and hiking. If you like fine dining, there’s plenty of that, too. There’s no end to the recreational possibilities the Middletown area offers. In fact, the nearby Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun casinos provide lots of action, entertainment and excitement.
In the Middlesex of it all.
What makes Middletown such a great place to live is its proximity to everything. Middletown is literally and figuratively in the middle of it all. Middletown is no sleepy New England village. It's a lively city situated in the hub of New England, about two hours from Boston and New York City.
From Middletown it's not far to the Connecticut coastline, to Cape Cod, to Mystic Seaport and Martha's Vineyard. It's also close to charming Connecticut towns, brilliant fall landscapes, and countless antique shops, historic sites and country fairs.
