"Not quite so small town, but still charming for it's simplicity!"

East Fishkill is easily one of the nicer towns in Dutchess County. I know the economy is a little better here than in many other towns, and it shows in great facilities like their parks and schools. I looked into East Fishkill quite a bit when moving to the area, and it was definitely toward the top of my list of places to live.

To be sure, the whole county has a small town feel, but East Fishkill doesn't suffer from quite the same limitations as other towns because of a larger population than towns like Dover, which is so limited that few restaurants and businesses can be supported. East Fishkill, while certainly not a big city, has enough of a population to give you some options for an active lifestyle. Because of this, East Fishkill is one of the few towns in Dutchess County that I'd recommend for singles. Sure, it still isn't as exciting as NYC, but the cost of living here is ridiculous compared to the city, and it's safer and picturesque to boot.

I think one thing you'll really love about East Fishkill, especially if you're used to a big city, is that it isn't quite as sleepy as other towns. It's quiet and peaceful, but not boring. That makes a big difference when you're in these smaller towns.

If you're a parent, take note that the schools are great, and there are a fair number of parks nearby for you to explore with your little ones. If you're the adventurous sort you'll love the parks and trails. I love Harrison's Trail and some of the golfing you can partake in when in East Fishkill.

The only negative I can really come up with for East Fishkill over other nearby towns is that it's a bit higher up on the economic ladder, so it's slightly more expensive. That's not to say it's really pricey, since this is still a small town, but it's more expensive than some areas.
  • Safe and good schools
