we walked thru westport up Pennsylvania on our way to supper one night and discovered where all the locals go. there is a strip of bars and restaurants teeming with locals as opposed to the swarms of tourists we encountered previously in the plaza (and market). we also located a tiny wine bar that we will try out tomorrow.

Westport is full of bars, entertainment, local shops, Coffee bars, restaurants and theater. Westport does have something for everyone. The Blue Stem, one of the best restaurants in the city is on Wesport's outer boundaries.
