Branford, CT —
New England: A state of mind as much as a geographic destination.

New England Begins Just North of New Haven and the “Q” Bridge. Branford, Connecticut is the first notable stop along that New England shoreline. It’s where a lobster roll contains hot steamed lobster meat, drizzled with butter on a toasted hot dog roll. Take your kids to Branford and the whole family can tour Stony Creek’s fabled Thimble Islands by boat and hear the tall tales of pirates hiding from the British navy. Afterwards, the adults can indulge with Montowese oysters and a Thimble Island IPA on the deck at Lenny’s while listening to jazz and watching the ospreys circling overhead.

Distance
Midway to NYC and Boston

"The granite quarry that provided the stone for the base of the Statue of Liberty."

The neighborhoods of Branford that form the town today are Short Beach, Pine Orchard, Pawson Park, Indian Neck, Stony Creek and Hotchkiss Grove. Each add their own layer of distinctiveness that characterizes Branford today.

"We kayak along the rocky coastline and up the tributaries to the River."

Branford’s housing stock lends itself to full-time ownership or summer rentals of cottage or castle. I hope you’ll come explore the wonders of the area and let me be your guide.
Having lived in Europe for ten years I’ve grown accustomed to superb breads and pastry accompanied by freshly ground and brewed coffee. On a typical weekend, I’ll indulge these tastes at the G-Café in the center of town where they excel both in full grain dark Vollkornbrot (German seeded bread), flaky croissants and pastries as well as all varieties of cappuccino and coffees. In all seasons, my husband and I take long walks at the Branford Supply Ponds and in summer, we take our boat down the Branford River into the Long Island Sound. Alternatively, for more of a workout, we kayak along the rocky coastline and up the tributaries to the River.
Music is central to the heartbeat of Branford. Summer kicks off with the Branford Festival in mid June, followed by Branford Fireworks and music at Branford Point. All summer long, Branford residents enjoy Jazz on the Green on Thursday evenings. Any holiday parade usually is accompanied by the Stony Creek Fife and Drum Corps, a very special treat.
