Norfolk ranked best small town three years in a row
From Arts to Architecture and hiking to history, one town in the northwest corner seems to have it all, which is probably why it has been ranked Connecticut’s “best small town” three years in a row by Connecticut Magazine.
Norfolk, Connecticut, offers a variety of outdoor escapes, including a hike up the summit of Haystack Mountain.
Once up top, hikers are surrounded by mountain vistas in the foothills of the Berkshire Mountains.
At 1,700 feet, visitors can even get a glimpse of neighboring Massachusetts to the north and New York state to the west.
Another Norfolk special is Campbell Falls, an incredible waterfall right on the border of Massachusetts and Connecticut.
Campbell Falls is surrounded by a pine forest with trees over 200 feet tall.
It’s set high in the hills of northwest Connecticut surrounded by green wooded land and a lot of open space at Campbell Falls State Park.
The history of Norfolk is that somewhere around the turn of the century it had one of the highest per capita incomes of any town in the United States.
Another feature in the town is Infinity Hall, which is a popular music venue. It used to be an opera house, a saloon, and even a barbershop.
