Newtown is like a cornucopia of beautiful homes in wonderful neighborhoods in this classic close-knit family town. Being Connecticut's largest town, there's lots of land and space to discover. Within the past 10 yrs or so many new properties have been built offering buyers everything they could want in a home at a good price. I have relocated many families to Newtown and they all say the same thing, "This is such a great community". The town center includes the well-known Flag Pole, such a pretty sight. Nice variety of terrific restaurants including Italian, Asian Fusion, American, Chinese, Grills, Thai, Indian, Breakfast restaurants and more. Make sure to visit the Butchers Best Market which offers fresh, local, natural foods. Starbucks, nail and hair salons, toy stores, diners, sandwhich shops, Ferris Acres Creamery (the most amazing ice cream made on premises) and more. If you're feeling energetic then it's time for golf (great public and private courses), play tennis or visit the skate park, or the Newtown Youth Academy which offers a great gym, snack bar, equipment and fitness programs for a minimal membership. Horse back riding enthusiasts feel right at home here with many bridle trails throughout Newtown and Sandy Hook. Many lucky homeowners can ride their horses from their backyard right onto a bridle trail system (which is maintained by volunteers). There are premier equestrian facilities and clubs here that add to the enjoyment of this idyllic New England town
