Special Features:
Southern New England is a wonderful place to live. From Groton, you are about 2-1/2 hrs from New York City, Boston, and Cape Cod; 3 hours to Vermont and Berkshire mountains region; one hour to Newport, RI (where you have weekly clinics). SE Connecticut is pretty quiet and very beautiful. Two casinos are both major attractions within 20 miles of base. Coastline, including Mystic and Mystic seaport, is especially nice. Lots of family activities. CT Schools among the best in the nation. Cape Cod and the islands (ESPECIALLY Martha's Vineyard) are an especially nice diversion. Base housing is just okay, and it is usually readily available. Lots of reasonable rentals are available. If you're looking for a home off base, suggest looking near Stonington (border of CT/RI) to cut down on travel time. This will place you half way (40-45 mins) between the two Veterinary Treatment Facilities (VTF) with easy travel along I-95 (minimal traffic here in eastern CT.)
