There are many great towns to live in here in Hartford County. Start with this.....
Great website that highlights a lot of the area. Then from that site you can move into other areas that are convenient to Hartford. The valley book for Farmington Valley which includes Avon, Simsbury and Farmington and then also one for the Glastonbury area.
