Active seniors looking for a home in Canton will enjoy living in one of the ten coolest small towns in America, according to Budget Travel magazine. What’s cool about Canton is the Farmington River, which runs through town and offers beautiful scenery and recreation, and the Farmington Valley Greenway, a rail trail that connects Canton to nearby communities.

Canton is located in Hartford County, has just over 10,000 residents and includes the villages of North Canton, Canton Center and Collinsville. It is a quaint New England town with plenty of local attractions, from the Canton Historical Museum to the Farmington River Trail and the Mills Pond Recreation Area.

There are a number of festive events in Canton each year, from the Lobsterfest in August to horse drawn carriage rides in December and a farmer’s market on Sundays from June through October.

Shoppers enjoy The Shoppes at Farmington Valley, a lifestyle shopping destination with more than 45 specialty stores and unique shops. Collinsville Canoe & Kayak, located on the Farmington River, is the largest specialty canoe and kayak store in New England. There are also a number of antiques stores in Collinsville and Canton.

Public schools in Canton are leaders in Connecticut with programs that shape the future of students by opening minds and transforming lives through creative and innovative programs.
