Awesome community! Community is very diverse and accepting across ALL demographics. Schools are like a private education. Educators are some of the best in the nation! Although an expensive town to live, proud to be a resident. Quiet relative to events with the Memorial Fair as the big event of the year. Great for families , seniors and LGBTQ. Small town center that provides all the necessities without a far drive when needed. If you can make this town your home, you won't be disappointed,

We moved to Weston from NYC for the school system and we love it here. It has two-acre zoning and it is a beautiful town that really allows you to feel like you are getting off the grid. Additionally it is close to the city (1h10 min ride from Westport or 1h30min ride from Wilton, depending on your location in the town), so we get the best of two worlds. It does not have many town amenities as mentioned in other comments, but this is how we like it here. The neighborhood towns have all of the shopping just minutes away and Amazon Prime solves the rest of the supply issue. Coming from NYC we were very surprised how friendly and welcoming people here.
Weston is the definition of a small town suburbia. The school systems are fantastic but there is nothing to do in the town itself. You have to drive at least 10-30 minutes to go anywhere to do anything. The town offers little besides excellent education and a plethora of hiking trails. It has a quiet, safe atmosphere and there isn't a soul in sight after 10pm.
