The best local secrets:
Best sandwiches: Corbos on the Corner. Get the Bruin, the Cardinal, The Roadie or #11.
Best cheat meal: Garden Catering. Get the High School Special (a favorite among guess-who ranging from 15-19 yrs old) - a half-pound white meat chicken nuggets with fries or “cones” (a lighter version of a tater tot). Always ask for extra seasoning and sides of honey mustard!
Entertainment: Bruce Park Grill.
"You’ll have to bring your A-game in shuffle board to keep up with locals who run the tables."
Running: Tod’s Point Loop Course, a 2.4 mile run where you’ll see Long Island Sound and New York City skyline views along the wooded, dirt paths.
Adventures for the whole family: Take the ferry to any three of the islands right off the coast (Great Captain, Little Captain & Wee Captain Islands). Pack camping gear, food and water and stay the night - free of charge!
A year long calendar packed with events:
Greenwich Town Party: An annual celebration for the people of Greenwich to come together and participate in a day of music, food, fun, family, and friendship to experience the strength of community.
"While the party is about a day of celebration, the effect it creates is far larger. It transcends that single day, building a lasting sense of town pride and the strength of the Greenwich community."
Cruise to Nowhere: Offered a few times during the year by the Town of Greenwich, this cruise on local waters offers a wonderful view of the Greenwich coastline. Bring your refreshments and food, sit back and relax during this two hour enjoyable cruise.
Greenwich Food and Wine Festival: Held every September, it is multi- day food, drink and music event that benefits the HOLE IN THE WALL GANG CAMP, a nationwide organization dedicated to providing healing to children and their families coping with cancer and other serious illnesses.
Greenwich Concours D’Elegance: Held in June and recognized as one of the premier concours in the country, Greenwich is unique in that it is two concours back to back. Saturday is the Concours Americana for American cars and motorcycles, while Sunday is the Concours International for imported marques.
