A look at Fairfield Connecticut

Best known for our rich history and picturesque setting on Long Island Sound, Fairfield, CT boasts that and much more. We are a vibrant community with an appealing quality of life and a refreshing business climate - and we're on the rise. 

Fairfield is one of the few towns where the town center, train station and beach are all within walking distance and major cities are conveniently within reach. 

We may not be a metropolis but we are no small town. Our population of 60,000 quickly expands to more than a half-million within a 25-mile radius. We’re a community of well-educated and business-minded professionals who think big, have high standards and know great value when we see it. 

Though we are historic, we also nurture progress. Being a college town not only helps us maintain our youthful attitude but our engaged student population also further enriches our highly qualified workforce. We are a leader in sustainability and we work hard to protect and preserve our environment for generations to come. 

We are all business but place equal value on balancing work and play. We’ve got everything from great shopping to inspired arts and entertainment to outdoor fun, farmer’s markets and healthy eats. Our vast array of restaurants is growing daily and we have some of the best pizza in the region. Yes, even compared to NYC. 

With all we have going for us, perhaps the better question is Why Not Fairfield? We’ve got it all right here and we’re ready for your future.
