Stamford in Fairfield county, Connecticut

Stamford, CT

Stamford is an exciting place to live, work and play.

This cosmopolitan center is teeming with successful enterprise and cultural enrichment. An explosion of corporate headquarters in the 1980s catapulted this already thriving community to international recognition.

Despite it’s built up downtown, Stamford maintains its New England charm. Panoramic views of Long Island Sound, pastoral meadows, and thickly-wooded areas are the captivating backdrops for a wealth of lifestyles, including elegant contemporaries, traditional colonials, sprawling ranches and deluxe condominiums. A variety of waterfront properties range from inviting cottages to the stately residences of Shippan Point.

The town's proximity to Interstate 95 and the Merritt Parkway facilitate travel within the city and to outlying areas. Public transportation is easily accessible via three stops on the Metro North Railroad for commuters and bus service offered by CT Transit.

The Barlett Arboretum and Gardens is ninety one acres of walking trails, wildflowers and woodlands.

The community also generously supports and promotes the arts. The Stamford Arts Center encompasses ballet, the symphony and drama. The Connecticut Grand Opera and Orchestra presents a full season of operatic and orchestral performances.
