Downtown of Norwalk

Routine place to visit if you stay in Norwalk. A lot of good restaurants and you can also take ferries/boats from there.

Aside from famous pizza we really don't go elsewhere due to us having kids . it's great for after work drinks or taking wifey out.

I guess it is historic because the buildings are old, but what you will find there now are expensive boutiques and a bunch of restaurants

Go for a meal or drinks at one of the many bars and restaurants in this area "under revival". And then stroll around this compact district boasting great shops, galleries and two museums.

We wandered into the district on Saturday afternoon and it was pretty dead - hardly anyone on the street. There are lots of restaurants and bars, as well as the Aquarium, in the neighborhood, but overall it looks like the sort of place that only comes alive maybe on Friday and Saturday nights.

This Gallery is by far The Best Gallery I've bein to outside of Boston. The array of art and knowledgeable staff made this a pleasant experience for me and my Family a 22 year old and 11 year old are not always easy to make memories with but the place made it special. *****

Spent the whole day in SoNo--checked out the aquarium, some local restaurants, and went into some shops. The area is very historic, and you can walk right up to the water in some areas. It was raining a little bit which wasn't bad, but on a nice, warm day, the area would be prime. Give it a shot and check... More
