This Tree City USA town of more than 17,000 residents was voted as one of CNN Money’s “Best Places to Live” in the United States in 2007 and features classic colonial and farmhouse homes, but also has its share of modern architecture. Wilton is nestled next to the Norwalk River, one town away from the Long Island Sound on Connecticut’s Gold Coast., close proximity to two train stations and the historic Meritt Parkway, Highway I-95 and Route 7. Neighborhoods include Silvermine, Georgetown, Wilton Center, South Wilton, Cannondale and North Wilton.
Next to the banks of the Norwalk River, Wilton’s charming downtown area has a Town Green, where the town’s Memorial Parade passes by, a nod to its Americana lifestyle. Recreation on and off the field is a big draw here, with more than 200 acres of developed recreation facilities, nearly 30 soccer and lacrosse fields and baseball and softball diamonds, as well as 12 tennis courts.
