Classic Connecticut community with vibrant downtown, manicured landscapes and well-developed retail sector.
Established in 1801, New Canaan is known for its well-manicured landscapes, classic colonial homes, and vibrant, picturesque downtown brimming with fine and casual dining options, high fashion boutiques, specialty shops and luxury in-town real estate developments. Complete with an exceptional school system, ranked #2 "Best School Districts in Connecticut" by Niche Media, this tight-knit community prides itself on both its culture and community - a combination many find hard to resist.
New Canaan's Annual Summer Fair and Sidewalk Sales, a long-running tradition for more than forty years, serve as one of many gathering moments for the community downtown. For those wishing to take a break from retail in favor of recreation, step over to New Canaan Nature Center, YMCA or Waveny Park, offering a community pool during the summer, and destination for public and private events the balance of the year. Two additional, no less pristine, parks - Mead and Irvin - are home to walking trails, town sports and children's playgrounds.
With its charm, warmth, sophistication and well-honed sense of community, New Canaan offers the best of New England living within an hour of New York City.
