RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- Ridgefield earned fifth place in a new list of the 10 Best Places To Live in Connecticut.
Movoto Real Estate ranked the Connecticut cities using a criteria that included quality of life, total crime, tax rates, unemployment, commute time and weather for municipalities in Connecticut with a population of more than 10,000. Movoto is an online real estate brokerage based in San Mateo, Calif.
"(Connecticut) has some of the most desirable real estate in the country, some of the best classrooms for your kiddos, low crime rates, and even more still, particularly in a select few places," Movoto representatives said.
The Town of Ridgefield earned fifth place out of more than 40 municipalities and was the safest out of all of the municipalities.
"Ridgefield is a quaint and beautiful town, known throughout the state for its stellar schools and world-class dining options," Movoto representatives said. "Things to do and places to eat aside (as we could probably devote an entire post to this alone), Ridgefield residents have an overall high quality of life, as seen in their high median household income of $116,597 and some of the highest median home and rent prices in the state, $719,500 and $1,570 respectively-a good indication of the town's desirability. Plus, with just 271 crimes per 100,000 people, Ridgefield was the safest on our list."
