Occupying the western flank of Stamford below the Merritt Parkway, bordering Greenwich, Westover is a quiet, mostly residential neighborhood with a population of about 3,000. Westover’s proximity to Greenwich, the Sound Shore coast, New York, and access to major eateries make it a very convenient location to call home base. It offers a strong suburban vibe balanced by parks and ample green space and is home to a diverse demographic of residents ranging from young professionals and new families to empty-nesters and retirees. Here are few of Westover’s hidden (and not-so-hidden) gems.
Offering a wide selection of equally delectable salads, sandwiches, and generously portioned hot entrees, Westover’s eponymous pizza commands a loyal following. They cook the pepperoni and other topics underneath the cheese, harmonizing the flavors of every slice.
Offering “four seasons of fun,” Roxbury’s robust aquatics program fields swimming, diving, synchronized swimming and water polo teams, and offers swimming, diving, and water aerobics classes.

Straddling the Greenwich and Stamford border, Mianus River State Park is a delightful, 400-acre urban forest.
