Great education and a great place for families. The cost of living is very expensive but the education is priceless! I have lived here all my life and I love the close knit community and have gotten a great education. I was extremely prepared for college as well. There is not much to do at night since it is a very small town, but you can find things if you try and NYC is only an hour away!

Weston is a beautiful small town with 2 acre zoning and a small shopping center. The town is community oriented and people chose to move here often for the school systems. The EMS and Fire Department are all ran on community volunteers, and the center provides the ideal small town feel. Great places to hike and gather, Westport being located nearby allows Westonites to feel less alienated from the outside world.
I like the fact that it's pretty small and you get to know a lot of the people well. There isn't a whole lot to do in Weston itself, but it's about 10 minutes from Westport, which has a lot of stores, 20 minutes to the beach, and an hour train ride to New York. It's also very safe: I've never heard of anyone having anything stolen or anything particularly crime-related occur. The public schools are very good and a lot of money goes into them. It's a big reason why people choose to live in Weston. If you do not have kids in the school system, it's harder to meet people, and may not be the best place for you to live. For the most part, people are friendly and it's nice to see your neighbors or people you know around town. I had a good experience in Weston, especially with the school system. It's very competitive and is probably more difficult than most schools in the US, but if you're looking for a quality education, Weston would be a very good choice.
