If you covet an upscale home that's walking distance to the beach, downtown and to your commuter train, Fairfield is your one-stop suburb. Located on the Long Island Sound, the city offers five miles of coastline and a town-owned marina for locals looking to tie up their yachts.
Downtown bustles with a variety of outdoor dining and shops, and although the location promises easy access to both New York City and Hartford, Fairfield is no corporate slouch -- GE is headquartered here. The company even has its own ZIP code.Subscribe to Money Magazine
