An Expat Talks about Living in Westport, Connecticut

What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?

Westport

What activities, clubs and organizations would you recommend to newcomers to help them meet others?

Join the Parks and Recreation once you have established residence. This includes Golf and Tennis as well as a pool for a reasonable rate. Also since you are on the Sound get a beach sticker, just $25.00 and you can even have a bar-b-que on the beach!!! The YMCA is first class although a bit pricey.

In terms of religious, racial, economic and cultural diversity, are the people of this city or town diverse? Are they accepting of differences? Describe.

There is diverse, growing Jewish community for sure. Not as colorful as NYC, for example, but evenly spread for a suberb.

What are the main industries in this city? What types of career opportunities commonly exist? How do most people find new jobs?

Everything from financial to retail. Real estate is a good position for a sophisticated experienced individual of the industry. There are jobs and there is no shortage of $$$.

In general, what are peoples' priorities in this city? For example, do lives revolve around work, family, socializing, sports, etc.?

Very family and outdoors oriented. Many young families from all over the U.S., as well as Europe.

If a friend of yours was thinking of moving to this city or town from far away, what other advice would you give them.

Don't Drink The Water!!!! Hahahaha, seriously I would say expect to live in a safe great town but that this comes with a cost. It's pricey, but there are great schools and it's a wonderful place to be in the summer. If you work in NYC, it's only a 60 minute ride to Grand Central, which in my view is better than New Jersey can offer. One train to your destination.
