Westport, CT —
Escape to a coastal paradise like no other

The upscale and eclectic town of Westport, CT, is just over an hour's train ride from Grand Central. Known as a forward-thinking community, Westport has historically served as an artist's haven.

Westport is perfect for the culturally-inclined who are looking for a laid back locale that's equal parts city and country.
