Many Darien residents moved to our beautiful town on the sound because of great schools and community life. Darien also has many wonderful characteristics of a small New England town: great parks and beaches, small neighborhood elementary schools, and many unique shops. There are also many wonderful civic organizations, children’s & teen activities and a variety of philanthropic activities. Art, history, music, sports, food, theater, entertainment it is all here and all of it together contributes to our quality of life.
Stroll our business districts and enjoy a plethora of restaurants, unique shops and pleasant “social gathering” plazas. An extra way to support our hometown businesses is to give “Darien Town Wide Gift Certificates” which are perfect gifts for everyone, and the program helps “keep the business in our town”. Every year, many thousands of dollars are recirculated through our community with the “Darien Town Wide Gift Certificate” program run by the chamber.
Our chamber members participate in education, networking and marketing programs to grow their businesses and in the process contribute the health of our community. The synergy of chamber businesses partnering with the community brings a healthy “buzz” to life in Darien, “our beautiful town on the Sound."
