Why Connecticut is the Best Place to Retire

Why Connecticut is the Best Place to Retire


A summertime stroll along a marina. A fall festival in town with family. A cozy popcorn and movie night by the fire (or at home) with your grandchildren. What makes peaceful and charming Connecticut so special is that it’s surrounded by everything you love — arts and culture, spectacular scenery year-round, and best of all, your family and loved ones. 


As you look forward to the endless fun and freedom of retirement, you deserve a gorgeous hometown in Connecticut that provides the lifestyle you want, near all of the people you know and love. Three of our beautiful new communities, Chatfield Farms, Trailside Reserve, and Perkins Reserve, embrace and enhance the way you love to live, so you can move in, get settled, and start experiencing your greatest days.


Take a look at a few of the many things that make Connecticut the most magnificent place to live: 


It’s versatile. Day trip to a rural winery? Weekend getaway to a beach or lake? No matter the season, you can get a taste of Connecticut’s spectacular geography with just a short trip from your beautiful EG home. 


It’s family-oriented. Built for families to enjoy the beauty of the seasons together, you’ll make your best memories with your loved ones, from scenic fall hikes to summertime picnics in your community and beyond.


It’s exciting. There’s no such thing as boredom in Connecticut… golf, nightlife, festivals, family-friendly activities, outdoor fun, sports, live music, dining, theater, shopping, breweries — the list is endless. 


It’s convenient. Apart from the endless opportunities offered in-state, Connecticut is situated near the major cities and vacation spots of the northeast, so you’re always just a short trip to anyone you want to visit. 


It’s pizza-minded. There’s absolutely no way to talk about Connecticut without mentioning pizza. That’s because in historic New Haven, you’ll indulge in the best pizza in America. Yes, that’s right… the best.


It’s romantic. Date night takes on a whole new meaning in this intimate and charming state. How about a candlelight dinner, a cooking class, a carriage ride, or a theater performance? Fall in love again and again.


It’s home. You know that pang in your heart when you’re away from home? Connecticut is the place that makes you feel whole again when you arrive. There’s something special about this state. Come feel the magic.
