Loved raising my kids here! Absolutely beautiful! Excellent schools. Close enough to NYC for frequent visits. Though a suburb it still retains some of its rural feel with the 1-2 acre zoning. Very quaint, charming New England feel.

The residents of Wilton are very friendly, welcoming and inclusive. I’ve lived in 3 other Fairfield County “top rated” towns and have not experienced these qualities.
The scenic, winding roads, as well as the town center are exceptionally charming. Our experience with the grade school is exceptional. The staff are above and beyond outstanding...I can’t say enough!! It’s a dream come true to live in such a beautiful town!
Wilton is situated among some highly competitive towns in Fairfield County but is more affordable, more house/land for your $$ and friendly. The town supports 4 schools from pre-k thru 12th grade and just renovated its pre-K thru 2nd grade building. Sports are just as big in Wilton as surrounding towns but also offer all students other wonderful options.
