Fairfield Overview

Fairfield, CT is located at the top of the "Gold Coast" of Long Island Sound, around 1 hour from New York City. Surrounding towns are Westport, Weston, Easton, Trumbull and Bridgeport. Easiest ways to get here are by car (I-95 and the Merritt Parkway both go through Fairfield) or Metro-North Railroad. From Long Island, you can also cross the sound on the Port Jefferson Ferry to Bridgeport.

Fairfield is home to Fairfield University and Sacred Heart University as well as General Electric. Fairfield has a nice downtown area with shopping, restaurants and bars (and a great community movie theater and theater company). You can also enjoy one of the five beaches on the sound (but don't try parking your car directly at the beach during the summer...)
