Moving to Connecticut
Connecticut (CT), nicknamed the Constitution State and The Land of Steady Habits, was the 5th state in the U.S., becoming a state on January 9, 1788. About 3,596,080 Connecticuters call this small state – 48th in size – home, and the state capital is Hartford. Bridgeport is the largest city in the state, whose main industries include agriculture, industry (especially insurance), and tourism. Other major cities include Stamford, New Haven, Waterbury, Norwalk, Danbury, New Britain, Greenwich and Bristol. Bordering Massachusetts, New York, Rhode Island and Long Island Sound of the Atlantic Ocean, Connecticut is the southernmost state in New England. The state motto of Connecticut is "Qui Transtulit Sustine," which means "He Who Transplanted Still Sustains."
