Town of Simsbury
An award winning town, Simsbury is listed on the National Trust for Historic Preservation as one of its "Dozen Distinctive Destinations." Also, federally designated as a "Preserve America" community, the town features a charming downtown filled with historic homes and fine restaurants, while the farms and open space harken back to their agricultural roots. With hiking trails, a navigable river for non-motorized vessels, a rails-to-trails bike path and free visitor bike rentals, there is a lot of outdoor recreational opportunities. And proud to be home of the biggest tree in Connecticut, the Pinchot Sycamore and a lovely pedestrian "flower bridge."
