Weston Connecticut

Weston has been designated “Best Small Town” in Connecticut for several years. It is a unique town that derives its beautiful rural atmosphere from natural beauty that has been protected by excellent town planning that cherishes “open space” and 2-acre zoning. Approximately one-third of the town is dedicated to open space in perpetuity. Weston has retained its rural character even through it is only approximately an hour from Manhattan; an easy commute via the Merritt Parkway, I-95 or Metro-North trains.

The small commercial center of Weston is conveniently located to all the schools, Town Hall, Weston Public Library, Weston Police and Volunteer Fire Departments and various churches.

Weston’s school system was rated, in 2005, as the best in Connecticut for similar size towns. The school system recently completed an $80 million expansion. It is unique in that all of the schools are conveniently located on one campus.
