Fairfield is a charming, thriving town featuring five miles of shoreline on the Long Island Sound. Fairfield has more than 59,000 residents but maintains a small-town feeling--diverse neighborhoods with their own character and flair, top-notch neighborhood-based schools, and many active civic associations. Beaches, marinas, parks, open space, and plenty of shopping and fine dining, all within 50 miles of New York City, make Fairfield a top community in the Northeast.
