There's so much to do!

There's so much to do!



I get to share the small town activities w my kids



I love living in the suburbs! There are many small stores with a wide variety of wares, and we are very close to urban shopping. The residents are very friendly and the school system is a good one. Neighbors are helpful and caring.



I love the schools and the focus on the arts I have found in my community of Westport

I love the community runs and races--the outdoor biking, the hiking in Devils Den Weston!!

When my kids were preschool aged I loved having the Maritime Aquarium nearby, as well as Stepping Stones Children’s Museum.  

Our libraries offer free programming--was a great go to place for me to do a mommy and me and meet other moms.  

Being a parent in Fairfield County is the best of both worlds: close enough to get into NYC with kids on the train or by car and perfect suburban family life--with great beaches and parks.

Stamford Museum nature center is simply the best (home to llamas and alpacas)!
