Another of the high-rent towns in posh Fairfield County, Darien (rhymes with "MaryAnn") has inspired numerous artists with its bucolic vistas of the Long Island Sound. Its status as a getaway for the wildly wealthy dates back to the 19th century when rail service first came to town and beachcombers were drawn to Darien's rugged coastline.
