Just one hour from Manhattan, Westport began its second renaissance when the era of mills and farms ended. Famous writers, artists and theater people set the pace. Seeking a retreat from the noise and bright lights of New York, they found another world just “up the mainline” (railroad) into Connecticut. Here by the seacoast and the green woods was an escape. The images of the town defined a lifestyle, invented a new vocabulary and forever fixed Westport in the American imagination.
Now a town of more that 26,000 inhabitants, Westport’s creative arts community influences the town’s sophisticated cosmopolitan atmosphere. Along with its appealing combination of seashore, and country charm, Westport, which includes Saugatuck, offers a diversity of cultural and recreational pursuits that include several theaters, a nature center, expansive library, museums, public and private clubs and an array of outdoor activities and seasonal events.
