About Caroline Chao

How long have you lived in Connecticut?

I have been in Connecticut since 2005 and have created some of my favorite memories including my husband and daughter.

What part of Connecticut do you live in and why?

My family and I live in Hamden where there are so many incredible things to enjoy like the parks, restaurants, walking trail, and shopping. I love that it is also in close proximity to New York and Boston. My family love Hamden and Connecticut in general!

What is your favorite local spot?

I am addicted to Famous Pizza in Little Italy, New Haven. They have the best pizza ever! I enjoy East Rock Park where you can reach the summit by foot, bicycle or car so that you can be treated to spectacular views of downtown New Haven, New Haven Harbor, Long Island Sound and the surrounding communities. Sleeping Giant State Park is also one of my favorites because I like hiking with my family and finding treasures in the park but not the Giant!

What is your favorite time of year in Connecticut?

I love every season here because they all offer something special. Cherry Blossoms in the spring, sunshine at the beach in the summer, Litchfield Hills in the autumn and snowboarding and skiing down it in the winter. All of the seasons are natures gift to us!

What makes you happy?

I love a good meal with family and friends where we can tell stories, reminisce and laugh like crazy at ourselves.

What is your favorite childhood memory?

I have lovely memories of my grandfather. Although he was not a rich man, he worked hard and had a successful life and he was generous to everyone except himself. People still mention him often after he passed away. I learned a lot from him like the fact that people are more important than money! I am the first grandchild in my family so he spoiled me a lot! He was my Santa Claus, not only for Christmas Eve but also every single day of my childhood.

If you moved today and only had one box to take with you, what would you put in it?

Letters that I wrote to my family. I have been a flight attendant for almost 15 years. When I traveled to any new country, I would mail a letter or postcard to my family and keep a copy of it. Therefore, we have collected many stamps from other countries. Those letters are very precious to me.
