The Town of Tolland, Connecticut has again been ranked as one of the 50 best small Towns in the country by Money Magazine. This year Tolland ranks 34th. Tolland has been on the list three other times. In 2005 Tolland was the 29th best place to live in America, in 2009 the 27th best place to live in America and 2011 the 37th best place to live in America.
The article published in Money Magazine cited Tolland’s 20% open space, our more than a dozen conservation areas, the historic Town Green and a robust local jobs market. The overall rankings are based on multiple factors including crime rates, school test scores, the local economy and recreation and arts opportunities, among other factors.
Other Connecticut Towns on the list this year included Simsbury at 9th and Cheshire at 45th. Money Magazine ranks towns in the U.S. with populations of 10,000 to 50,000 ever other year.
