WELCOME TO FAIRFIELD

FAIRFIELD: A NEW ENGLAND TOWN THAT HAS IT ALL

Located 50 miles from New York City, Fairfield is situated on five miles of stunning waterfront along the Gold Coast of Connecticut. It provides it’s 65,105 residents with five public beaches, beautiful parks and woodlands, playgrounds and recreation areas, a full service marina, and a variety of community activities. 

Fairfield boasts strong historical roots dating back to 1639 and maintains a small-town feeling in contrast to its  thriving businesses, top-notch education system and two highly regarded universities. It is a popular destination for outstanding restaurants, shopping and a bustling cultural scene.

Located within Fairfield is the coastal enclave of Southport.  It is part of the town of Fairfield, but its identity is very much its own. More than 150 of its buildings, mainly houses, are protected within the Southport Historic District. The rich array of 18th- and 19th-century architecture, including many grand examples of Federal and Greek Revival styles, reflects the area’s affluence during its heyday as a seaport, and preserves the aristocratic air that still sets Southport apart.

Known as the Dogwood Capital of the World, 10,000 trees bloom in Fairfield each spring. Fairfield is also home to six golf courses, five year round clay tennis courts, and plenty of activities, such as fishing, hiking, swimming and boating.  The town is host to many festivals and events that celebrate its history and coastal surroundings.  In summer, Jennings Beach is a joyous place to while away a sunny day, visited by food trucks and organized family film screenings on Friday nights.  Other beloved town attractions include, Penfield Beach, The Fairfield Theater Company, which hosts some of music’s most well-known musical artists, The Quick Center for the Arts and The Fairfield University Art Museum.

Education is a focus of this community, home to excellent public schools, three private schools and Fairfield and Sacred Heart Universities. Additional enrichment accrues from an incredible mix of 50 neighborhoods.  Since zoning for houses ranges from one-quarter acre to two acres depending upon area, homes range from condominiums, ranches, split levels and antique New England Colonials to the horse farms of Greenfield Hill.

Providing diverse neighborhoods from beachfront to historic Southport to back country Greenfield Hill—Fairfield has a great deal to offer its residents who call this charming town their home.
