Greenwich

About the area

A wealthy enclave on Connecticut’s Gold Coast, Greenwich is consistently ranked as one of the richest cities in America. Greenwich is one of the oldest towns in Connecticut, full of rich history and culture. Only a 50-minute train ride to New York City, this coastal town gives you the charming New England feel as well as the vibrant and exciting city life. This coastal town 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. The main shopping center, referred to by locals as “the Avenue” or Greenwich Avenue, has pretty much everything you would expect from a major metropolitan area. Greenwich has countless parks and facilities within the town’s limits. It would be hard not to start with Greenwich Point Park, also known as Tod’s Point to locals. Greenwich Point is a 147.3-acre town-owned beach and recreation area that is breathtakingly beautiful. Many enjoy it for its beaches, running paths, marina, or picnic areas.
