Welcome to Darien
Nestled along Connecticut’s “Gold Coast,” Darien (approx. pop 20,732) is a beautiful bedroom community once primarily a summer enclave for New York’s elite. With its sweeping views of Long Island Sound, rolling landscape and small coves situated throughout the waterfront area, Darien has long been the subject of great inspiration—and great art. John Frederick Kensett used Contentment Island in Darien as the subject of many romantic landscapes, several of which have found permanents homes at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. This rich aesthetic permeates Darien, informing its unparalleled grandeur along with its classic Americana charm. The result is a well-appointed, cosmopolitan-meets-country town like no other.
