Norwalk, CT Restaurants, Restaurant Menus & Dining
There are few cities that offer such a dynamic mix of heritage, nature, art and action as Fairfield County’s Norwalk. The city literally bristles with the opportunities to literally plunge into a heady atmosphere where the past is in the present and the present is often in – the sea! The centerpiece of this “Living Legend” is South Norwalk’s historically reclaimed So No district with its with hip, high quality restaurants and shops. So No is anchored by the Maritime Aquarium and IMAX Theatre, which invites visitors of all ages to become immersed in sea life. Adjacent to the Aquarium, on a bluff overlooking the Norwalk River is Oyster Shell Park where trails and walkways wind through marsh grasses, reeds and wildflowers. The park abounds with migratory birds, fiddler crabs and other aquatic life. From this bluff is a view of Norwalk Harbor, “The Jewel of Long Island Sound. And out beyond the harbor are a string of five islands with Sheffield, the largest, home to a lighthouse as well as many nesting birds and wintering harbor seals.
What else is there to see and do in Norwalk? Well, let’s see.
There is: The Lockwood-Matthews Mansion Museum – Victorian splendor at its finest, the Jackie Robinson Jazz Festival, the Mill Hill Historic Park, the Norwalk Harbor Splash Festival, The Norwalk Museum in Historic So No, Shakespeare on the Sound, the Silvermine Guild Arts Center, the Steppingstone Museum for Children and of course the Norwalk Oyster Festival.
