With so much to do in Greenwich during the holiday season targeting all types of ages, interests and levels of engagement, I thought I would provide a sampling of some in no particular order. If you don’t live here yet, come visit! See what’s its like to live in a diverse community with public and privately funded events for all to enjoy. See and feel the energy of a town with plenty to do and the warm embraces, smiles and conversation as residents run into each other and plan activities connecting generations and neighbors throughout Greenwich, Cos Cob, Glenville, Byram, Riverside, Pickwick, Old Greenwich, Back Country, Banksville, and North Mianus. Enjoy the holidays!

Greenwich Point is a true treasure any time of year. Starting December 1st, dogs are allowed on leash throughout the park. There is nothing quite like walking the dog through a a frosting of snow on the sand and watching the sun glimmer off the sound. Peaceful. Beautiful. Invigorating.
Enjoy the holidays! Mary-Stuart’s Greenwich Weekly will resume in 2018.
