Bridgeport's Backyard - Saint Mary's By the Sea

You'll be more than pleased with all of the activities and destinations located only a short distance from the Riverwalk Condominiums. While the Bridgeport area is a place to live for some, it is a vacation destination for others. If you are the outdoorsy type, then the one area you will want to spend most of your time in is Saint Mary's By the Sea, located in the Black Rock neighborhood.

Birds and wildlife are all viewable by the developed walkway. The views of Long Island Sound and Black Rock Harbor are simply breathtaking. The half mile walkway is ideal for a leisurely stroll or a regular jog. The beach, itself, is gorgeous. There is no fee to get in and no concession stands or vendors crowding the sand, making it almost serene.

The best thing about this beach, and this area, is its personality. In the late 1800's and early 1900's, St. Mary's became a destination for wealthy merchants and businessmen. To this day, many of their homes still remain standing, lending way to a very historical feel in the Black Rock neighborhood.

St. Mary's history, along with its unspoiled views, makes this location a hidden treasure. Living in Bridgeport, CT could mean having this private getaway right in your backyard. If you are interested in coming to take a look at the Riverwalk Condominiums, please don't hesitate to give me a call.

Staycation Ideas in Bridgeport Connecticut

Sometimes you can't always make it away for a vacation in the summer time. The great thing about living in Bridgeport Connecticut is the abundance of events and attractions all around the area. Who needs to leave town when you can take a "stay-cation" getaway?

One of the best weekend trips you can make in Bridgeport is to the Connecticut Beardsely Zoo. Serving Connecticut for over 80 years, it is dedicated to the preservation of endangered animals through education, conservation, research and recreation.

It is a great getaway for kids, young and old. More than 300 animals call this place home, including some endangered species. The Zoo also boasts a South American rainforest, a prairie dog exhibit, a New England Farmyard and a hoofstock trail.

On top of all the ongoing fun, there are also always special events peppered throughout the year. Here are a few upcoming ones to watch out for…

"Twelfth Night"
July 16 - July 30
8 p.m. - 10 p.m.
Come watch this free performance of Shakespeare's famous "Twelfth Night" at the Peacock Pavilion. The zoo welcomes picnics so you could easily make a day of it - start the day off exploring the zoo, pack a picnic basket for dinner and end the night with Shakespearean play. A true trip away from home!

Evening Lecture Series: Reforestation
July 21
7 p.m. - 8 p.m.
Here is your chance to learn from a respected educator on the subject of reforestation. Dr. Herster Barres of Reforest the Tropics discusses research and plans for a CO2 off-set program. Once again, this is Free to the public and a great learning opportunity available right in your Bridgeport backyard.

If Bridgeport sounds like the kind of place that you would like to call home, give me a call. I would love to show you some wonderful Bridgeport Real Estate in the Brooklawn area. If you want the luxury of living in a gated community away from the city life, yet convenient to all major highways, public transportation, and tons of "stay-cation" opportunities, then Riverwalk Condominiums may be just what you are looking for.

Fourth of July in Bridgeport, CT

It's that great time of year again in Bridgeport! Summer is in full swing, the grill is hot, spirits are high, and the 4th of July is just around the corner. There is no shortage of activities in the area this weekend. Whether you're attending a block party blow-out, or just barbecuing with the family, July 4th is always a great day for fun. There is no better way to celebrate the birth of a nation than enjoying the outdoors, relaxing with friends and neighbors, and sharing in the spirit of the community.

Start things off on Saturday at Calf Pasture Beach Park in Norwalk, with live entertainment, kid-friendly activities, and you guessed it... fireworks! Head down to Jennings or Penfield Beach in Fairfield for a magnificent fireworks display on Sunday night, with the Atwood Oldies Band performing at Jennings, and 'In Harmony' will take the stage at Penfield Beach. Be sure to save some energy for Monday because the party isn't over. Head on down to Barnum's Birthday Bash on July 5th for ongoing activities, entertainment, and refreshments from noon to 3pm. This event is free to all Bridgeport residents.

Enjoy a safe & happy Fourth of July in Bridgeport, CT!

Living in Fairfield, CT - The Best that Connecticut Has to Offer

Did you know that Fairfield, CT was ranked the Best Town in Connecticut by Connecticut Magazine in 2009?

When determining this sought after top spot, Connecticut Magazine took into account education, economy, cost of living, crime, leisure and culture. Fairfield, CT more than excelled, receiving a score of 1 (on a scale of 17) in education, a 2 for crime and economy and a 4 for leisure.

Greenwich used to be the reigning champ of the Best Town spot until Fairfield, CT snagged the top spot. This was in large part on the account of Fairfield's highly regarded education system. Their Mastery Test scores, CAPT scores and numbers of high school grads continuing their education in college put them over the edge.

Of the 169 towns in Connecticut, Fairfield, CT ranked number one. Furthermore, in 2006, Money Magazine ranked Fairfield the ninth "Best Place to Live" in the United State. As you can imagine, this makes the town a very sought after place to live.

The Riverwalk Condominiums offer the perfect location for those looking for the benefits of Fairfield living. The gated community is only less than two miles from the new Metro North Train Station in Fairfield, but also is convenient to Bridgeport and Long Island Sound. If you are looking for Condos in Bridgeport boarding Fairfeld, CT, don't hesitate to contact me at 203-540-5127. It truly is a one-of-a-kind town and a great place to live. After all, you can't go wrong with number one!
