East Haddam is a primarily residential community with light industry, small family business and tourism supporting the economy.
Local residences include eye catching historic homes along the river and newly constructed homes in styles to fit everyone’s tastes. Charming old stonewalls meander across the countryside, creating many enchanting views.
The picturesque river front of East Haddam makes it a popular summer resort and family camping destination. Residents and tourists alike have access to swimming, boating, fishing and all the seaside fun nearby Long Island Sound beaches have to offer.
There is a strong cultural vein in East Haddam, supported by historic Goodspeed Opera House which has been hosting theater and musical shows since 1877. Romantic journeys along the scenic Connecticut River are offered by the day and evening riverboat cruises.
The Connecticut River, which forms the western boundary of East Haddam, is not the community's only natural resource. Other sources of local pride include the Eight Mile River, Salmon River, several lakes and the gorgeous Devil's Hopyard State Park.

The educational climate index chart is based on the U.S. Census Bureau’s Socioeconomic Status (SES) measure. Factors in this measure are income, educational achievement and occupation of persons within a ZIP code. Because this measure is based on the population of an entire ZIP code, it may not reflect the nature of an individual school.
