COME VISIT GREENWICH
From great sport events, beaches, to clubs, museums, cultural events, top retail, restaurants and hotels there is so much to do and experience in Greenwich. Greenwich is a big town with a small town feel. Whatever your lifestyle and interests are, chances are Greenwich will resonate with you.
ARTS & CULTURE
We can’t imagine any other town in the country that has so many residents and organizations dedicated to supporting. Private collectors and the Town of Greenwich generously support the Bruce Museum. The Bruce is known for its high-quality shows, as well as its science component, both of which are also offered to kids of all ages in their much-loved education programs. The Greenwich Arts Council features “Art to the Avenue” every May. Simply stroll down the Avenue and explore contemporary artists’ work in every store and stop into one of the galleries along the way for a sip of wine. Great fun!
RESTAURANTS & MARKETS
The restaurant scene in Greenwich is a wealth of culinary experiences and spans the entire town. In downtown Greenwich you can experience a Michelin-trained French chef, Thomas Henkelmann of the Homestead Inn, Italian food at Mediterraneo, or Valbella’s. In the back country you can dine at Rebecca’s or head over to Riverside and indulge in delicious sandwiches at Ada’s Kitchen & Coffee near the Riverside train station or to the Beach House in Old Greenwich.
During much loved annual events like the Greenwich Holiday Stroll and the Town Party restaurants and food trucks roll out delicious food. Or join us for Greenwich Restaurant Week in November, featuring wine tastings and special dinners at our finest restaurants.
