Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC has named Weston one of Connecticut’s top five best suburbs.
The real estate company partnered with Onboard Informatics to rank the top places for suburbanites and analyze trends based on data from more than 11,000 suburban areas as part of its five-part “Best Places to Live” series.
The data revealed a glimpse into life in the suburbs, where many people own their homes (75%), drive to work (92%) and spend approximately four times as much to prepare meals at home as to go out to eat.
According to Coldwell Banker’s analysis, the top five suburban towns to live in in Connecticut are, in order, Easton, Weston, Redding, Wilton, and Bethany.
Cherry Hills Village, Colo., approximately 10 miles south of downtown Denver, rank as the No. 1 Best Place for Suburbanites, receiving the highest score in the nation with a nearly 100% home ownership rate and less than 20 minute average commute.
The following communities make up the Top 10 “Best Places to Live for Suburbanites,” scoring high on a range of attributes, such as access to suburban amenities (grocery stores, banks, etc.), proximity to good schools, commuting by car, and community safety.
1. Cherry Hills Village, Colo.
