A Food-Packed Fourth of July

Having grown up on the Gold Coast, I’ve seen Darien transform into such a beautiful town. Downtown Darien, Noroton, and Tokeneke make up the largest neighborhoods of this classic New England town and is my favorite place to spend the Fourth of July.

Here’s what we did to celebrate the holiday in Darien:

I start my day at Equinox in Noroton Heights for an early Pilates or Spinning class. Today my friend XX and I went to an awesome class –Stars and Stripes Yoga!

Once freshened up, we headed over to Palmers Market and searched for yummy picnic ingredients! Palmers began as a butcher shop in the 1920s and has become somewhat of a landmark for its great produce.

We grabbed a few snacks and made our way to Weed Beach. The Beach is a perfect place to go for a swim or just to spend time under the sun. Weed Beach is surprisingly huge—22.12 acres.

Having enjoyed the sun and sand, we eventually made our way over to Ten Twenty Post in Downtown Darien to grab oysters and rosé. With full bellies, we strolled down to Gofer’s Ice Cream and enjoyed the rest of our Independence Day!
