Let’s take a trip down Route 2 for today’s Destination Location! 

Colchester is named after a town in England, a place where many of its original settlers called home.  The town had great success in manufacturing in the 1800s and became a popular tourist destination in the 1930s.

In 2005 Colchester was named the 57th best place to live in the U.S. by CNN’s Money Magazine, and they celebrate that great achievement every year with a festival they call 57 Fest

The people who live here tell us Colchester has grown so much in recent years but still feels like a small town. Watch the video above to hear what they had to say!
