We love the lifestyle, the close knit community, the nature. Cute town, helpful people and a stones throw from many amenities around neighboring communities and New York City metro area. Great schools and great community!

I love the fact that Easton is it's own town because just a few miles away lies Bridgeport which is completely different. Easton is home to just a few residents but a lot of different wild animals. Easton is known for it's farms and great scenery. I love Easton because moving from Stamford has clearly shown the differences between living in a city and rural area. I love that I am able to drive down to a local farm and buy fresh fruits and veggies from awesome farmers. It is pretty typical that a town like Stamford doesn't quite have this advantage. The residents are pretty awesome too! However, there isn't much diversity in Easton. I've found that as a new student, my peers were shocked to see that a black female was their new classmate because Easton is a predominantly white area. The schools in Easton are pretty advanced compared to some schools in cities!
Easton has a strong sense of community. It is a wonderful place to raise a family and you always feel safe. We moved here 6 years ago when my children were middle-school aged. It was hard for them to leave the only town they had known and all of their friends, however Easton students were very welcoming. Ultimately, they attended Joel Barlow HS where they received a great education, made life-long friends and enjoyed a competitive sports program. Easton is a beautiful town~you fee a sense of peace & tranquility here, without feeling isolated. Easton is close-by to an abundance of amenities, and because of that you get the best of both worlds.
