Welcome to Housatonic Valley & Coastal Fairfield

You can measure the wealth of the Housatonic Valley and Coastal Fairfield region by not only the size of the its residents’ wallets, but also by the size of the amount of things to do! Tour the architecturally odd Philip Johnson Glass House in New Canaan. Built with sheets of quarter-inch glass and no interior walls, the house was meant to be a viewing platform for the Connecticut landscape. Explore that landscape at Weir Farm National Historic Site, preserving the home of American painter Julian Alden Weir and also offering hiking opportunities. In Bridgeport, be entertained at the Barnum Museum, dedicated to the infamous founder of the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus, P.T. Barnum. With a wealth of options like this, you won’t know where to start!
