Simsbury Town Green and Band Shell

Comprised of four communities; Simsbury Center, West Simsbury, Weatogue and Tarrifville, Simsbury keeps getting better and better. This is the town in the valley that already consistently ranks at the top of all of the state's quality-of-life charts, so getting better is hard to imagine. Careful planning and development decisions continue to reap big benefits. Simsbury has more protected open space, an attractive town center, plenty of history and charm along with numerous recreational options and cultural attractions. Not only is the Simsbury lifestyle very inviting, but the school system in Simsbury is excellent as well. Homes here include impressive neighborhoods of stately traditional homes, elegant contemporary colonials, inviting condominium communities, upscale over 55 communities, and historic restorations.
