If you Dream of a

Posh Lifestyle by the Water,

These May be the Towns for You

Greenwich

Boasting 32 miles of shoreline and four beaches (including two islands with ferry service) Greenwich provides true waterfront living in a luxury setting. One of the most coveted waterfront spots is Greenwich Point Park (known to the locals as Tod’s Point), where you can enjoy hiking, kayaking, picnics and summer events in the seaside garden. You can also join the Old Greenwich Yacht Club to take full advantage of the waterfront lifestyle.


If you’re looking to explore high-end stores and trendy restaurants, Greenwich Avenue is the town’s main commercial district. For those with a love for art and film, there are ample offerings including the annual Greenwich International Film Festival and free movie screenings and discussions at the library every Friday night. The beloved Bruce Museum of Arts and Science, sitting atop a hill overlooking Greenwich Harbor, has garnered global acclaim for its art exhibitions. 

Darien

With four town parks, two public beaches on the Long Island Sound (Weed Beach and Pear Tree Point Beach), and at least seven private country clubs, including a pair of yacht clubs, residents of Darien enjoy plenty of opportunities for a sophisticated social life. Residents also boast about the Ox Ridge Riding & Racquet Club, a well-known equestrian training facility.


Darien’s downtown district is undergoing a major development with plans for the “Corbin District”. The development plan includes high-end boutiques, multiple exercise studios, luxury residential units, and office spaces in a one-of-a-kind architectural setting centered around a new town square. Several highly designed outdoor public spaces will complement the area, hosting farmers’ markets, outdoor concerts and various community gatherings.


Westport

Westport is a scenic and luxurious waterfront town that is home to just under 30,000 residents. The Saugatuck River runs through the middle and flows into the Long Island Sound, providing stunning views and unlimited opportunities for waterfront recreation. Compo Beach is considered the gem of Westport, offering residents access to an expansive playground, picnic areas and BBQ facilities.  Sherwood Island State Park provides over 230 acres for hiking, picnicking and bird watching. There are also numerous country clubs throughout town. Longshore Country Club is town owned and provides membership exclusively to Westport residents and offers golf, swimming pools, tennis, paddle ball, sailing, ice skating and more, all with beautiful views of the Long Island Sound. 


The picturesque downtown Main Street has a handful of cafes and luxury boutiques. One of the major attractions is the Westport Country Playhouse, a 578-seat theater. Book fairs, concerts, theatrical events and festivals, including the Jazz, Blues & BBQ festival, reflect the town's pride and appreciation for art and music.


Rye

This quaint suburb is rich in history and covers 14 miles of coastline along the Long Island Sound. Residents enjoy the sandy beaches and the easy commute 45 minute to NYC. The downtown offers a mix of boutique shops, fine restaurants and everyday conveniences to keep a vibrant lifestyle. There are a wealth of recreational activities such as the beloved Playland Park (a classic amusement park build in 1928), Westchester Children’s Museum, Rye nature center, wildlife sanctuary, and 62-acre park with a duck pond and swimming beach.


There are many picturesque neighborhood streets within walking distance to downtown, schools and parks. Closer to the shorelines, find larger homes and lots that boast water views. Plus, the highly regarded school system continues to draw families to this area
