East Windsor presents a lovely blend of suburban areas and flourishing commercial centers along the Connecticut River.

Residents protect the charm and privacy of their residential areas. They achieve this by strict separation of living and working space, and by an active community voice in the aesthetic development of new commercial properties.

Community services include a variety of social, health and transportation offerings. The public school system has strong academic, athletic and adult education programs. The recreation department promotes public parks, individual and team sports, tennis and a public outdoor pool.

The Connecticut Trolley Museum is a popular point of interest. The Connecticut Fire Museum is also in town in the Warehouse Point section. The local historical society operates the East Windsor Academy Museum.

The location along the Interstate 91 corridor provides easy commuter access to nearby urban centers like Hartford and Springfield.
