10 Reasons Why Living in Connecticut Is So Awesome
Recently, I've been whining about how expensive it is to make ends meet while living in Connecticut.
As I've told friends and family from time to time, "Instead of complaining non-stop, how about taking a step back and appreciate the good things in your life?"
So, I'm going to take my own advice, and point out ten reasons why Connecticut is so awesome.
New York City
The Big Apple is only a day trip away. It's only 90 minutes from northern Fairfield County, and 30 minutes from the southern part of the county.
Some of the best in Connecticut are, Sally's Apizza (New Haven), Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletena (New Haven), Modern Apizza (New Haven), Colony Grill (Stamford, Fairfield, Milford), and Stanziato's (Danbury).

Seafood, My God the Seafood!
The UCONN Women Huskies
Since the Lady Huskies' debut back in 1974, they've compiled a 1,045-288 win/loss record, and hold the record with 90 consecutive wins.
