Welcome To Fairfield

Charming and vibrant coastal town just outside of NYC with small-town charm and big-city conveniences.
Sitting just outside of Bridgeport and a short drive east of Manhattan lies one of Connecticut's most picturesque coastal communities. Sitting on the shores of the Long Island Sound, Fairfield is the ideal image of a Northeastern waterfront town, with bucolic scenery, a historic town center, and beautiful homes set on sprawling properties.
Originally one of the two principal settlements in Connecticut, Fairfield has played an important role throughout history from its founding in 1639, through both the Revolutionary and Civil War and the economic success brought on by Bridgeport’s involvement in munitions manufacturing during the two World Wars. Fairfield’s community works to preserve its past for years to come through its stunning historic sites and landmarks found throughout the various neighborhoods.
Fairfield is also a community that looks forward to a bright future. Not only does the area offer quintessential New England charm and a family-friendly atmosphere, but its various neighborhoods also have vibrant community centers and thriving local economies. That’s one of the primary reasons why this area is continuously voted one of the best places to live in the Northeast.
