Just 50 minutes away from New York City lies the affluent and picturesque town of Greenwich, Connecticut, where there’s as much to do, see, and eat as there is on Fifth Avenue and many of Fairfield County’s other charming cities and towns—has been an attractive vacation destination for in-the-know New Yorkers and New Englanders for years.
More recently, its beaches, mansions, and revamped shopping and dining scene have turned the town into a hotspot for international tourists as well.
Greenwich is one of the oldest towns in Connecticut, full of rich history and culture, this coastal town gives you the charming New England feel as well as the vibrant and exciting city life.
Greenwich is the largest on Connecticut’s ‘Gold Coast’ due to its many hedge funds and large financial service companies. The town has four beaches on Long Island Sound where you can enjoy swimming, boating, fishing or relaxing on the sand. Several festivals take place throughout the year for all interests; arts, film, food, and cultural.
Take a stroll through Greenwich’s downtown where you can enjoy fine dining, shops, and other attractions.
Composed of seven small hamlets, the historic homes and beautifully manicured gardens of Greenwich have made it a popular film location for movies about small town America.
GREENWICH’S UNSPOILED NATURE
