Weston is a lovely, historic New England town that values its natural rural beauty of open space, land and the noteworthy Saugatuck Reservoir. It’s among the most affluent communities in the United States and in 2011 was named by Connecticut Magazine as the number one town in Connecticut for towns with populations of 10,000–15,000. The rating considers education, crime, economy, cost and leisure.
Aside from a handful of stores that form the town’s charming center, Weston has little commercial development. Most of Devil’s Den Preserve, a 1,756-acre nature reserve, which gets 40,000 visits a year, is located in the town, adding to its bucolic character. Residential development is limited by two-acre zoning.
Weston offers top-ranked public schools on a unified campus and is committed to educational innovation and personalized attention to all students.
Manhattan is just 45 miles away with easy access to Interstate 95 and the Merritt Parkway. Residents can also access Metro North train service from Westport or Wilton.
