Located in the northwestern corner of Connecticut, bordering New York State’s Dutchess County, Litchfield County is best known for its picturesque hills, New England charm, and for the wide-open space that residents enjoy here. Many weekend trippers make their way up from New York City and never leave, at least not until Monday.
The many restored homes and village greens that make up the towns of Litchfield paint a picture of quaint Americana, even if Manhattan is just two hours away. You’ll find an exciting variety of restaurants, bars, and breweries here that look to cater to a crowd used to NYC standards. The region has its fair share of antique shops, boutiques, and art galleries as well. For those looking for an outdoor lifestyle, Litchfield offers plenty to do, from hiking to canoeing to watersports and much more.
