With all the sophistication and excitement of a big city, New London stands out with its distinctive small-town intimacy and community feel. Between the down-to-earth vibe and the local, owner-operated nature of downtown shops, restaurants, and arts venues — New London invites you in as a bonafide member of the community.


Here to roll out the welcome wagon for our new residents, our community partners help you get a sense for what life in New London is all about. The local shops, restaurants, and art scene truly make up the heart of New London, building the interconnected city we’re proud to call home.
