Danbury

Danbury is a city in northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, United States, located along the Still River approximately 70 miles northeast of New York City. Step out of the city life by going to Bear Mountain Reservation and Tarrywile Park & Mansion. Get out of town with these interesting Danbury side-trips: Woodbury (Walker Road Vineyards & Flanders Nature Center), New Canaan (Carriage Barn Arts Center & New Canaan Nature Center) and Macricostas Preserve (in New Preston). Next up on the itinerary: tee off at Richter Park Golf Course, buy something for everyone on your list at Danbury Fair Mall, admire the masterpieces at Yale University Art Gallery, and explore the striking landscape of Weir Farm National Historic Site.

Plan my trip to Danbury with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

New York City to Danbury is an approximately 1.5-hour car ride. Plan for little chillier temperatures traveling from New York City in October, with highs in Danbury at 65°F and lows at 44°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Mon) so you can drive to Hartford.
