Coastal Paradise With Cosmopolitan Pleasures
Midway between New York and Boston and easily reachable by train or interstate, Branford offers an exciting coastal region for foodies, arts and theater lovers, as well as outdoor enthusiasts.

The town comes alive in the summer beginning with the family-oriented Branford Festival and road race in mid-June and weekly Jazz on the Green. Boaters, hikers, cyclists, kayakers, and sunbathers find pleasure in the varied scenery of lakes, rivers, marshes, woods, and dramatic shoreline.
