Westport, CT —
Liveliest Neighborhood on the Long Island Sound

You might think a neighborhood with dozens of cool restaurants, a fantastic ice cream shop, a rowing club, kayak/paddleboard rental store, outdoor music and playground — all within a few steps of the train station — would be too much to ask for.
Throw in a Cape Cod clone — with a private island, two yacht clubs and a beach, just a short hop down the road — and you must think it’s really a figment of a realtor’s imagination.

Welcome to Saugatuck, Saugatuck Shores and Saugatuck Island. As soon as you arrive, you feel like you’re at a vacation destination.
Saugatuck, with its active, navigable river and Long Island Sound access, was the original center of Westport.
A recent renovation project has made the area once again the hottest in town. By day, it pulses with activity; when the sun goes down, the 27 restaurants, cafes and bars offer something for everyone.

"It’s an eclectic area."

Just around the bend from the train station (with frequent service to New York and New Haven), Saugatuck Avenue is graced by homes on one or more acres. Many feature private docks; nearly all offer spectacular views. The lifestyle is tranquil and it’s just an hour from New York City.
Don’t miss Stony Point, a gorgeous road winding down to the river just beyond the station’s brick wall.
Water and sky are visible almost everywhere on Saugatuck Shores. Central Bermuda Lagoon is a jet skier and windsurfer’s delight. The Shores also fronts the Sound, with its wealth of activities.

"An ice cream shop straight out of Norman Rockwell."

But you don’t have to head far, just over the historic William Cribari swing bridge, to find two of Westport’s gems: Compo Beach (with its own marina, volleyball and basketball courts, dozens of barbecue grills and endless people-watching), and Longshore (a public park with 18-hole golf course, tennis courts, pool, marina, sailboat and kayak rentals, inn and restaurant).
Both are just a couple of minutes away by car, bike or boat. You can walk there too, over a narrow, pedestrian-only bridge from the train station over the Saugatuck River.
Even many Westporters have never heard of that span. Now you’re truly a Saugatuck local.
