About Our Town: Colchester Commons
Colchester is often referred to as The Right Town Between Work and Play.

In 2005, Money magazine named Colchester the 57th best place to live in the United States. That honor is celebrated with a 57 Fest drawing a large crowd every year.

Colchester is located at the intersection of Routes 2, 85 and 16, minutes away from major highways - and yet it boasts country living.

The town is at the gateway to one of the most explosive recreation areas in Connecticut, including Foxwoods, Mohegan Sun, Mystic Seaport, Bushnell Theatre and many other quality cultural opportunities, all within a 30 – 60 minute drive.

Major transportation facilities include Bradley Airport (40 minute drive) and Amtrak Rail in New London or Old Saybrook both within 25 miles.

Colchester’s Town Green is known for its summer concerts, fairs, car shows and much more. A peaceful, quiet place to live and yet so much going on all around us.

We are an independent and close knit community and we take pride in the fact that we have been here 20 plus years as a self-sufficient Corporation. We encourage the volunteer effort to keep it that way. We do hope you choose to visit us and look forward to meeting you. Come see how much we enjoy living at Colchester Commons.
