to do in SoNo!
What began as a working maritime port and evolved to an industrial center, is now a thriving downtown that is the perfect balance of history and hip. Enjoy drinks at outdoor terraces or harborside walks along the river, all within walking distance to MetroNorth and less than an hour away from NYC.
There’s a treasure trove of hot spots and cool places in SoNo. There are diners, coffee shops and bakeries. Find quick-serve places great for lunch, white-tablecloth restaurants for date night and sports bars to catch the game.
One of the best things about SoNo is the accessibility and ease of getting around. MetroNorth’s train station is just a few minutes walk so you can get to points north and south in a flash. If you need to use a car, entrance ramps to I95 and RT7 are less than a mile away.
There are art galleries, home furnishing stores and a few boutique clothing stores in SoNo. Plus, the new SoNo Collection is nearby, with over 150 retail stores, including Nordstrom and Bloomingdale’s. And let’s not forget the public library with a sizable inventory of books and DVDs.
of the Harbor
The Norwalk River is just down the road. Grab a bike, slip on some sneakers or just take a stroll along the river. The amount of activity will surprise you. Watch the crew teams train, the lobster boats bring back their daily haul, the Sheffield Island Ferry, the cormorants find some lunch and so much more.
