The town of Glastonbury, CT begins on the banks of the Connecticut River and extends up into the foothills, offering exceptional views of the Hartford skyline. Interestingly, Glastonbury is also home to the oldest continuously running ferry in the United States, only shutting down in the winter when the river freezes over. Started in 1655, the ferry actually dates back prior to Glastonbury’s founding, when it was still part of Wethersfield. Homes for sale in Glastonbury CT are also positioned in close proximity to Meshomasic State Forest, one of the country’s largest state forests. This is a popular area for hiking, fishing and hunting. Recreational activities do not stop there however! The town is home to many town sponsored programs, plentiful public open space, and recreation facilities including a skate park, two outdoor pools, one indoor pool, numerous children’s playgrounds, fourteen tennis courts, a nine-hole golf course, and an all weather outdoor running track and synthetic turf field.
