Darien delights outdoor enthusiasts, whether boating, golfing, hiking, or just relaxing on the beach is your thing. It's home to the first golf club in Connecticut (and the second or third in the country), as well as beautiful beaches and public parks. Two yacht clubs serve boaters, while horse owners and lovers will be drawn to a number of national and local equestrian events every year. Horses and boats not for you? There is a group for just about any interest, and the social whirl is impressive, from fundraising galas to gardening and ice hockey clubs. Wooded properties set on gently rolling hills, equestrian playgrounds, and waterfront mansions are all available.
