Directly north of Hartford, on the west banks of the Connecticut River, is the suburban town of Windsor. The famously fertile region is still home to many farms, although they're now accompanied by neighborhoods of families, parks and even local businesses. Homes for rent in Windsor are conveniently located near Interstate 91 and several local roads for a 10-minute commute to the capital's downtown. Windsor is also home to several great outdoor recreation areas that families can take advantage of for scenic hikes, bike rides and picnics. Matianuck State Park, Windsor Meadows State Park and Mill Brook State Park are just a few examples of the outdoor spaces in town.
Windsor is a great suburb of the capital city that lets families take advantage of the benefits of a large city without dealing with the congestion.
