Everything New Canaan
I’ve been exploring and writing about Connecticut since 2006. After a decade, I began compiling guides for each town in the state. I plan on “completing” New Canaan… as well as the other 168 towns, cities, and boroughs in Connecticut. After all, that is the ultimate goal of CTMQ.
What do you know about the town that is most famous for being incredibly wealthy with a wealth of mid-century modern architecture? You can scroll down for my list of things to do in town. Or, as always, you can click on the town’s tag to see what I’ve done.
If I’ve missed anything in town or if anything has closed or changed, please let me know.
