Congratulations on your big decision to move to Connecticut!

The “Constitution State.” The “Nutmeg State.” The “Provisions State.” The “Land of Steady Habits.” All are correct. For a slight state, Connecticut is not short on nicknames. If you plan a move here, prepare yourself to find the nation’s third-smallest state overflowing with an abundance of amenities. The rich history, beautiful scenery and world-renowned seafood are merely a few of the advantages that consistently make this one of the most desirable places to live in the country.

Choose Your Movers Early

Moving cross-country is a lot more complex than moving in-town, and there are a lot of factors to consider before you choose a moving company. First, find out if your intended movers specialize in long-distance moves. Long-distance moves require more logistics than in-town moves, coordinating truck schedules, storage facility availability and driver scheduling. There are many small details and logistics that your movers will have to coordinate, so it pays to go with a company that specializes in moves from New Jersey to states in the West.

Book your movers early as the best companies often fill their schedules months in advance. The summer months are the most popular for moves as families want to get settled before the school year starts. Most people who move cross-country prefer to move during good weather and on weekends, so if you're planning to move on a Saturday in the summer, it pays to book your mover as early as possible. If you're selling one home while buying another, you may need date flexibility, and getting your mover booked early ensures that you can make the necessary changes before your moving day.

White Glove Moving is New Jersey's premier company for long-distance moves. We specialize in cross-country moves, and with our team of 200 estimators, office staff, and management, you can be assured your treasured belongings will arrive at your destination safely and efficiently.

Enjoy the beauty of

Scenic Coastal Connecticut

The Connecticut shoreline comprises the state’s entire southern border with Long Island Sound and is home to some of the most idyllic towns anywhere. Madison, for instance, is a magnet, with its old-fashioned downtown and the sprawlingHammonasset Beach State Park – the state’s largest beach, which also allows camping. Grab some fried clams at the Clam Castle or more upscale bistro fare at Bar Bouchée. Mystic is probably the most widely known of all the quaint coastal towns. This historic shipbuilding village, at the mouth of the Mystic River, is home to theCharles W. Morgan, an authentic 19th Century whaling ship. Old Saybrook, Connecticut’s oldest shoreline town, is a posh residential community. It’s also home to theKatharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center, an intimate theater named for the late Oscar winner who once called this seaside village home. Stony Creek ranks high on the cuteness scale, but it’s also where the tour boats depart for tours of the aptly namedThimble Islands. Onboard, you’ll hear tales of celebrity homes, the Great Hurricane of 1938 and unrecovered pirate treasure. And, of course, there’s the A-lister town of Westport, just an hour’s train ride from Grand Central Terminal in Manhattan. Grab a pint at theBlack Duck Café, which, at this point, has its own celebrity status. And while we’re talking about the coastal eateries, did you know the lobster roll sandwich was invented in Connecticut? Lobster shacks dot the coastline, where you can enjoy oysters, clams, and other seafood favorites as well.

Lose yourself in

The “Secret Corner”

The Northwest area of Connecticut, in and around the rolling Litchfield Hills, is known as the “Secret Corner,” (unlike the Northeast area, which is called the “Quiet Corner.”) This beautiful, peaceful place, bounded on the west by the New York border and the Housatonic River, offers luxuries for residents and visitors alike during all four seasons. There’s hiking and bicycling in the spring and summer.Lake Compounce Theme Park in Bristol and Quassy Amusement Park in Middlebury are popular with the kids. In the fall, take a drive along Route 7, which parallels the Housatonic, to enjoy foliage (which is said to last longer in Connecticut than in any other New England state). The Housatonic and smaller streams, by the way, are renowned for the amazing trout fishing. Autumn is also the perfect time to visit the village of Kent and take a stroll over the picturesque Cornwall Bridge. Cozy, winter weekends are a great time to visit the town of Woodbury, the region’s epicenter for antiquing.

It's Easy to

Get from Here to There

Connecticut is about 70 miles wide and 110 miles long. You could easily drive from one end to the other in less than two hours with time enough to stop for coffee. To go from southwest to northeast along the coast you would take I-95 (the majority of the CT Turnpike), to go through Hartford instead, you’d take I-84. I-91 runs North/South through the center of the state, I-395 (the remainder of the CT Turnpike), North/South along the eastern edge of the state. However, if riding is preferable to driving, there are plenty of rail options. If you’re looking to travel to and from New York City,Metro-North Railroad is the way to go. The New Haven Line offers service directly to Grand Central Terminal. Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor also runs right through Connecticut with regional and high-speed service. If you need to fly,Bradley International Airport is in Windsor Locks, just north of Hartford.Westchester County Airport in Harrison, New York is a convenient choice for residents in the southwestern part of the state.

Huskies and Bulldogs, Oh My!

Access Top Schools

Education is a big deal in tiny Connecticut. Public schools consistently rank among the top 5 in the country. Recently, its education chief has been appointed as the President’s Education Secretary. Moreover, Connecticut boasts 37 colleges and universities throughout. The University of Connecticut, UConn, is in the town of Storrs and has just over 18,000 undergraduate students. Due to the success of the athletic programs, particularly basketball, “Husky Fever” is rampant throughout the state. You’ll see bumper stickers, banners, and flags everywhere. Combined, the men’s and women’s basketball teams have won 21 NCAA championships and Gampel Pavilion, the on-campus arena where the games are played, is sacred ground. Further south, in New Haven, is Yale, the Ivy League university that was founded in 1701. In addition to being an elite institution of higher learning, and the country’s third oldest college, Yale is also very welcoming. Yale University is home to art galleries, music venues, a natural history museum, and even a rare book library. You can take a campus tour or just relax and watch students and visitors from all over the world explore this fascinating campus. Yale also funds the New Haven Promise program, paying full tuition for eligible students from New Haven public schools.


Are We in New England Yet?

There’s a playful debate you’ll hear from time to time: Is Connecticut really part ofNew England? Yes, it is. Even if some residents cheer for New York sports teams, and even though some restaurants serve Manhattan-style (red) clam chowder, the undeniable fact is that Connecticut is one of the five New England states, along with Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Maine, Vermont, and New Hampshire. Sure, the centrally located state capital, Hartford, is, essentially, equidistant from Boston and New York City. But one drive through scenic Connecticut proves the state has an unmistakable New England character. The rivers, hills, ponds, and forests; the stone walls enclosing fields; the old, silent cemeteries; the rocky shores and pocket beaches; the town greens and Congregational churches with white-clapboard siding are all hallmarks of this historic region.
