When it comes to quintessential New England towns, Fairfield, Connecticut holds a lot of appeal for visitors for many reasons. Given its prime location on the Long Island Sound, five miles of pristine shoreline and the picturesque Southport Harbor, this charming destination offers ample opportunity to spend time outdoors, whether making sandcastles on the beach, hiking, biking, and exploring the shops, sites, and quaint Colonial, Federalist and Victorian architecture found in the Historic District, which by the way happens to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Dining is also delightful with traditional taverns serving pub classics, seafood spots and fine dining establishments serving something to satisfy every craving.
A good place to enjoy the scenery and fresh air is the Lake Mohegan Recreation Area. Located off Morehouse Highway, the popular point of interest features tons of trails, quiet picnic areas as well as swimming during the warmer months. Nature lovers will also want to spend time at The Connecticut Audubon Society featuring the Larsen Sanctuary Trails and a beautiful backdrop to see all sorts of birds up close. Over at the Fairfield Museum and History Center, fascinating exhibitions such as 'Flappers: Fashion and Freedom' and 'Culper Ring: The Spies of George Washington' definitely keep it interesting. In the evening, on the campus of Fairfield University, culture abounds at the Fairfield Theatre Company which presents an outstanding program packed with stand-up comedians, well-known musicians, dance companies, films and more.
While Fairfield experiences all four seasons, summer is perhaps a favorite time to go with out-of-towners and locals flocking to Jennings Beach and Penfield Beach for the sun, surf and sand. Those who prefer to golf have the H. Smith Richardson Golf Course, which is open to the public for play. Finally, fall is perfect for watching the turning of the leaves, while winter is great for special holiday events.
