Quiet New England Charm

Fifty miles northeast of New York City lie Connecticut's Fairfield County—a thriving area on the Long Island Sound with much to offer visitors. Within the town of Weston, an idyllic escape within this affluent county, there are four historic districts, two steepled churches, and 3,500 acres of open space. The town’s history dates back several centuries with antique homes still lining the main roadways and an 1830 weathered wooden building known as the Onion Barn across from the town’s shopping center. There are plenty of opportunities to get outside with myriad nature preserves, including the Devil’s Den, with 20 miles of scenic hiking trails.
