CT: Fairfield County- Greenwich- Holiday Stroll

Originally a cow path with a strong scent of manure in the air was the scene of the original Greenwich Avenue, then called Piking Lane in Horseneck.

Quite a difference a couple of centuries makes when you walk down the Avenue during the holidays. While the hometown spirit remains you can also feel the sense of grandeur from the cars, stores, people and community establishments – including the senior center, churches and restaurants.

While there are several chain stores where mom and pops were previously, they ensure to meet the Greenwich standards of bringing the Avenue to life to engage in a lovely holiday stroll.

There are several tributaries off the main trunk of the Avenue to which I encourage a little jaunt. Grab a hot chocolate and plum strudel from Starbucks, a crepe from Meli-milo or an eclair from the patisserie and participate even briefly in the grandeur of Greenwich.

I find often overshadowed by the stores, Greenwich Common Park on the Avenue is a lovely interim stroll about half way down. So easily overlooked but always lovely in each season.

There are so many opportunities for mini adventures and to feel a part of what at times may feel an untouchable area!
