Niantic shows us why it's the town for you, me


A nonprofit organization has created an original song and released a music video on YouTube in an effort to keep Niantic, CT's status as the "Fan-Favorite Town" in Connecticut.

The Connecticut Office of Tourism is holding its second annual Connecticut still revolutionary contest to determine the fan-favorite town in the state. People can vote each day through social media on the town that most encompasses the notion of Connecticut's still revolutionary campaign.

"Connecticut still revolutionary is a haven for original ideas and innovation that offers a dynamic blend of experiences," states.

The winning town receives "promotional support from Connecticut's Office of Tourism" as well as "bragging rights."

The 2013 winner was Niantic, which is "a small Connecticut village located along the shore of the Long Island Sound," according to

Now, the Niantic Main Street is trying to retain its crown by creating the original song titled Niantic - It's the Town for Me. In the music video, local singer/songwriter Kelly Eberle visits 40 Niantic businesses and attractions while singing the song.

Kelly's sister, Kate Eberle, co-wrote the song as well as directed and edited the video.

The contest also allows for people to vote for their favorite business, destination or attraction in the town of their choosing.

"The people of Niantic have a genuine love for this village and their community," said Niantic Main Street President Dan Walsh on its website. "We're aiming for two years in a row!"
