FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- Anyone who complains that there isn't anything to do in Connecticut clearly aren't living--or partying--in Stamford, Norwalk, Greenwich or Westport, which were all recently named in the Top 10 most exciting places in the state, according to movoto.com.

Movoto created the list by ranking all communities with 10,000 or more people and used census date to find:

  • Nightlife per capita (bars, clubs, comedy spots, etc.)
  • Live music venues per capita
  • Active life options per capita (parks, outdoor activities, etc.)
  • Arts and Entertainment per capita (movie theaters, festivals, galleries, theaters, etc.)
  • Fast food restaurants per capita (the fewer the better)
  • Percentage of restaurants that are not fast food (the higher the better)
  • Percentage of young residents ages 18 to 34 (the higher the better)
  • Population density (the higher the better)

Each of the 38 communities in the state were then ranked based on their scores in each category. 

Stamford was the top finisher for Fairfield County in a tie for fourth place due to its nightlife such as the Beer Garden at Harbor Point, entertainment venues including the Palace Theatre and a high concentration of restaurants versus fast-food joints. 

Norwalk placed seventh thanks to its high volume of arts and culture activities, active lifestyle and fine dining at places such as Valencia Luncheria.

Greenwich clocked in at No. 9 thanks to arts venues such as the Bruce Museum and for its high concentration of local, non-fast food restaurants such as Thai Basil and Elm Street Oyster Bar. 

Westport rounded out the Top 10 thanks to events such as the Westport Fine Arts Festival, and busy entertainment venues, including the Westport Country Playhouse. 

Overall, New Haven topped Movoto's list of most exciting places in Connecticut, followed closely by New London. 

Trumbull ranked last at No. 38, according to Movoto.

NOW FOR MY PITIFUL LIFE

I am 60 years old and a complete failure
I have no J.O.B.
I played in a go nowhere garage band and they kicked me out
I am a meth head
I am a coke head
I have a wine enema fetish
My rear end leaks do to me putting things in it.
I had 2 cars repoed
My house was foreclosed
I live in the shelter
I post from the public library
I am a stupid racist
I am a racist because I am jealous that most if not all blacks are smarter than I am
I hate Obama because he has done so well for himself at such a young age
I hate Obama because I am such a failure at such an old old age.
My x-wife caught me in bed with a black dude
My x-wife kicked me to the curb because she caught me in bed with a black dude
My wee no longer woks do to my bad prostate
I tend to wet the bed when high

AS YOU CAN ALL SEE MY LIFE SUCKS AND I AM A COMPLETE AND TOTAL FAILURE.
WANT TO KNOW ANYTHING ELSE JUST ASK

The biggest problem in Norwalk is the failures that are the Norwalk Police department

Bacigalupe
I just noticed your post in-between all the posts from the troll. You are 100 percent correct. The Norwalk Police department had been a disaster for years. They have solved ZERO of the shootings and killings of the part 5 years.. They should be outsourced.

you say that with all your usernames but you cannot ever explain why

That is the troll everyone is talking about. niikktard, banned from every site but topix and now this site allows him to ruin it.

He is terrified to use his own name, robtard found him on a gay dating site which is why he stalks and thinks everyone is robtard.

You cannot make this stuff up!

Actually you are the troll everyone is talking about.

So why exactly is the npd so horrible? Simple question...

Why would anyone answer a question from a troll such as yourself?
Please answer that question.
, Why do you troll Ct sites when you live in Ny ?
Why do you have 50 user names?
Why did your parents get rid of you?
Answer those questions and the group will consider answering yours.. Unless you're a coward.

So you can post with many user names as pointed out, but you can never tell us one reason why the NPD is so horrible. Why is that? Not even ONE reason.

Do you actually think in your mind there is a "group"? So are these usernames sort of like imaginary friends? I am sure you do not have any real friends, based on your creepy behavior.

Just because you change user names from norwalktroll to natsgarage does not change the response and questions we gave.
I do reline that you are stupid so I will repeat it so someone can read it to you.

Tons if great stuff to do, 17 years here never experienced the made up violence someone likes to post.

Hey stupid the word is of not if.. Such a stupid Robtard

Ignore the troll that posts as Norwalktroll. He/She/IT doesn't even live in Norwalk ..It lives in Port Chester. It only trolls the Norwalk sites as its name implies.

related what is my address? What color underwear do I have on? You are one creepy stalker that's for sure

You are one obsessed delusional queen ever since the group uncovered that your biological father was a black Muslim.

really? What is my address? What color underwear do I have on? You are one creepy stalker that's for sure

What color underwear do you have on....
I would say the same pink lace panties that you always wear.

Shootouts? Bullets? Hmmmm. You should definitely stay home then. Us Norwalker's wouldn't want to endanger any out-of-towners.

I wonder what if they took into consideration the number of bullets (fired) where Norwalk would be?

Sure its exciting if you are into wild west shoot outs.
