It is literally surrounded with beautiful rivers, reservoirs, forests, and hills; perfect for outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy walking, running, cycling, canoeing, kayaking, and is even not far from a handful of ski and snowboarding destinations. Remoteness and tranquility, only two and half hoursĀ  drive from modern world centers like New York City, NY and Boston, MA, and is only 25 minutes form the state capital Hartford, CT. This is why Collinsville is attracting a lot of attention lately.

In its September 2007 issue, Budget Travel placed Collinsville within its top 10 Coolest Small Towns. It isn’t hard to see why it made it there. The classic New England architecture and history, matched with it’s natural beauty, is becoming the perfect backdrop for a new generation of artists and musicians. Local celebrations, shops, restaurants, and galleries provide opportunities for many to showcase their work and talents, while providing an environment for wholesome local entertainment.

Very few small towns celebrate holidays and events like Collinsville. It’s a town that just loves to be together and celebrate together. From the traditions of Christmas like Santa Claus and town sleigh rides, to the unique, eccentric and extremely popular Halloween Party, to the numerous sidewalk art shows throughout the year, it’s true that there are few small towns that celebrate occasions like this one.
