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.

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.
We are one of the few Spanish families that live in Wilton. We’ve been here for 4 years and we like it. We enjoy the atmosphere and the amenities that the town has to offer, athletic and cultural, safety overall. Our children consider Wilton home, even though we spent a lot of time living in Stamford, CT. The public school is one of the best in CT, my children attended private schools in Stamford, but when we moved to Wilton there was no second thought and they started attending public schools, and they have done great.
