    I loved the town of Stamford. I've been back enough to want to move and live there and I have. I've watched Stamford transform from a small mom and pop town into a City on the verge of becoming the next New York City! With the additions happening to Harbor Point and Connecticut ave, Stamford is growing into something amazing.

    My experience living in Stamford is wonderful because the city itself is spontaneously beautiful with the tall skyscraper buildings, multiple restaurants, and just the setting of Stamford benefits anyone that likes to travel, such as New York City is only about 45 minutes to an hour away. If you like to go out to different restaurants and try different type of custom food they are mostly located downtown near Stamford Town Center. If you love the beach and walking on the sand; they have three different types of beaches to attended especially on July 4th to watch the fireworks. I love Stamford because I feel we have multiple resources around town which is not more than ten miles from your house or anywhere you are located. I personally feel nothing has to change in Stamford because they already made the changes of how downtown scenery should look like. I overall feel anyone that wants to spend a weekend in Connecticut should come to Stamford "where everything works."

    Overall, Stamford is a pretty cool place to be. There's lots to do, lots of cool restaurants, and super close to NYC. There's the awesome Alive at 5 series in the summer, as well as farmer's markets and running groups. However, it is fairly expensive to live here and you have to make sure you keep yourself on a budget!
