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,

Quite, beautiful, peaceful, safe. The seasons are gorgeous, it sometimes feels like a postcard. The homes are all well kept, people are friendly and there a many places to hike and walk.

You are close to Westport and all the amenities: restaurants, bars, gyms, shopping, including the Westport Train station, you also can get beach passes to Compo.

There are many farmer markets in Weston and nearby towns. It’s a beautiful place to live, whether you have a family or not.

The school system is one of the best in CT.

There is a small shopping area with a grocery store, restaurant, liquor store, gas station, post off and a red zone gym.

I don’t find having to drive to Westport a downside I love the peacefulness and beauty of Weston. That Is why I rated the nightlife good, it’s a short drive from lower Weston.
Weston is a beautiful place to live, only 45 miles from New York but with a distinctly rural feel due to the two-acre zoning and the many acres of preserved land and hiking trails. The natural surroundings here are truly breathtaking. The town center is small, with only the basics, but nearby towns have a variety of shopping and restaurants. Although cost of living is predictably expensive, buyers get more bang for their buck (the flip side being a longer commute to NYC). Property taxes are also high, but are significantly lower than in the NY and NJ suburbs. In other words, it's all relative. The crown jewel is the school system - it is truly top notch, with small class sizes, and invariably ranked as one of the top two or three public school systems in the state. In short, Weston is an excellent place for those who like quiet, bucolic living (but with easy access to modern conveniences), and/or for those who want to raise their children in a family-oriented town with great schools.
