The Mianus River Park is a nearly 400-acre of natural beauty, on the border between Greenwich and Stamford, along the Mianus River. A part of the river flows through the park, and you can find here ponds, brooks, many hiking trails and a fishing pier. Some of the activities here include horseback riding, a great way to explore the reserve and admire the surprisingly beautiful flora and fauna.

The Cos Cob Waterfront Park has picnic areas and scenic trails that offer beautiful harbor views. As you drive a few minutes on the River Road, through the historic district, you can stop to visit the famous Bush-Holley House, a National Historic Landmark. This is the house where the first American impressionist painters gathered and formed the Cos Cob Art Colony in the 19th century. The magical beauty of this very place is captured in world-renowned paintings.
The beach is also very close. Just about a 10 minutes drive to Fords Beach or to one of the best beaches on Long Island Sound, the amazing Greenwich Point that boasts sandy beaches and a park, and it offers breathtaking views of Manhattan skyline and beautiful views of the ocean from 3 sides.
