I was born and raised in Stamford and just recently paid it the old Surprise Visit. Demographics and times have changed and it is not the same city at all. Too bad.

Schools in this area are great, low crime rates as well. Housing can be a bit pricey but the scenery of this city is beautiful.

Brennans, a hidden pub in a dead end street has to be my favorite place to drink as well as to eat. Their food is phenomenal, the greatest thing along with this is that its right next to the beach so you can spend time at the beach then walk to the bar.
