Unearth Your Branford Apartment
Oh, Branford, Connecticut. How does one love thee? Shall we count the ways?
First, its shoreline location in Long Island Sound makes it a fine piece of nature's eye candy that demands to be seen. Second, though it was once a resort town, and has since transformed into a suburban hot spot for the NYC-Boston crowd, it maintains its allure as a place to flaunt like a cool pair of shoes. And third, it's home to luminaries that include Nobel prize winners and mathematicians.
This concludes one of the least romantic expressions of love to a city that have ever been uttered. But you can't deny its informative if not poetic content, no? Remember to use the "Ask a Question" feature to get custom feedback from locals who know far more than you'll likely require about Branford.
Branford's Early Days
It's almost a cliche of early American settlement: Pilgrim types sell trinkets and other miscellany that today would be worth less than nothing to some natives for land. Alas, this is how Branford, too, sprang up in the early 17th century. Thriving off of small scale agriculture, and the shipping industry that exploited (a bad word nowadays, but once a rather neutral word for "take advantage of") the Atlantic's bounty and delivered the goods to Branford's rocky shores, this city steadily secured its place as a center of commerce and minor prestige. Over the years - ok, many, many years - long after "New Haven Colony" had become Branford, Connecticut weathered the storm of industrialization and the introduction of creaky (and then less and less creaky) rail service, and Branford moved right along with it.
Branford In The Modern Day
Branford likes to showcase its quality of life. What city wouldn't? But we believe it has some right to be prioritized on this score, because its civic capital is just off the charts. Of course, you can't have civic capital without human capital, so you can bet that Branfordians are pretty solid folks at the face-to-face level too.
From the Branford Elks Club to the Branford Clean Energy Task Force (the B.C.E.T.F. - not a catchy acronym, which may be why they don't use it, but we digress), the Branford Rotary Club to the Branford MOMS Club, this little town that could and can is a vertiable cup spilling over with positive vibes. Heck, Branford even has a "compassion club", tasked with feline rescue and recovery. Visit their site, seriously. It's bittersweet.
Rounding out this community spirit on steroids is Branford's effective and functional smattering of public services. Solid waste, water pollution, and the basics of police and fire protection are top notch, and as for education, expect to enroll the kiddies in one Branford's six K-12 institutions. You'll probably never feel better about "institutionalizing" your young ones.
Branford is host to a handful of distinct communities, but for those seeking a suitable apartment, it looks like Branford Hills might be the preferred place to settle (and get) down.
Getting Some Action In Branford
There's lots to do in Branford. If scouting the coast to peep all of its natural bounty is your thing, take a cruise out to the nearby Thimble Islands. If doing more or less the same thing without actually putting yourself out on the water is your preferred method for obtaining fun with the ocean, take a jaunt up the Shoreline Greenway Trail or Lake Saltonstall walking paths. Further inland, you'll find the entertainment value of Branford's land lovers to be without measure. Unless you're measuring it with belly laughs, in which case a stop at the Puppet House Theater is a must do.
Speaking of the belly, are you hungry? Top off the above buffet of outings with a visit to Donovan's Reef in Branford Center, essentially the city's "downtown part". Here you can enjoy a good brew or a snazzy glass of wine with an American grille style menu, and even better, take in the sounds of the live music that is as much a regular to the joint as its Grilled Pork Medallion. Yum.

Are there big sporting events that people in Branford enjoy attending?
Branford itself doesn't host any major professional or collegiate sports teams. However, New Haven, home to Yale University, is just a quick 15-minute drive down Whitney Ave. The Yale Bulldogs have many teams from baseball, basketball, soccer, football, crew, lacrosse, tennis, sailing, squash, ice hockey, and more. All teams are NCAA Division I except for football, which is Division I-AA.
Why should I move to Branford?
With a population of about 29,000, Branford is a town in New Haven County, Connecticut. Located 8 miles east of New Haven on Long Island Sound, Branford is an ideal place for those that work in New Haven but prefer to live in a smaller, more manageable community. Given its location on the water, it's also great for those that enjoy nautical living and pastimes. For families with school-age children, Branford's public education system is excellent relative to the rest of the country. The Branford School District, which serves Branford students, was rated better than 86.9 percent of school districts in the country.
Is Branford pet friendly?
Home to one off-leash dog park and several non-dog-specific parks, Branford is fairly pet-friendly. Located behind the adult day care center, Branford Dog Park has grass and drinking water, but there is no separate small dog area. Other parks in town where you can take your pets as long as they are kept on leash include Supply Pond Park, Youngs Pond Park, and Foote Memorial Park. East Haven's Farm River State Park, located just 10 minutes southwest of downtown Branford, is another good place for spending time outdoors with pets in the area.
