WELCOME TO FAIRFIELD
Fairfield is a charming town and maintains a small-town feeling even with its more than 59,000 residents.
Perfectly settled along five miles of shoreline on the Long Island Sound, Fairfield has five town beaches, two universities, many parks and ball fields, two public golf courses, and a vibrant array of fine dining, restaurants, and shopping.
Fairfield's schools are among the state's best (top 25 in Connecticut) with rich academic programs, to provide students with the most current knowledge and tools they need for a successful future.
Only 50 miles from New York City, Fairfield is easily accessible to I-95 and the Merritt Parkway and has three train stations on the Metro-North line that extends from New Haven, Connecticut to New York’s Grand Central Terminal.
