Fairfield, CT —
Spend an afternoon in Greenfield Hill
What I love most about Fairfield is absolutely living in a town with both a countryside and a beach.
For a lovely afternoon in the country, take a drive up to Greenfield Hill. It’s a sprawling neighborhood of properties located in the northwest part of town, both above and below the Merritt Parkway. Homes are set on two or more acres, so hiking is literally in your own backyard. The beloved Audubon and Brett Woods beckon you to explore and delight in the quiet calm of a nature walk. The Audubon Center & Nature Store is open until 3 pm every day except Sunday, so be sure to take a peek at the owls and hawks in residence. The store has a great selection of bird-related items including feeders, birdhouses, birding books and gifts for the kids.
