In Yankee Magazine’s listing of Best Beach Towns, Madison is Connecticut’s only entry. In addition to its outstanding beaches, however, Madison is further defined by woodlands and residential neighborhoods. Its charming, pedestrian-friendly downtown center appeals to many tastes and interests, offering an award-winning bookstore, art cinema, tea emporium, coffee shops, cafes and restaurants, and clothing and gift boutiques. The E. C. Scranton Memorial Library and a large, picturesque town green anchor the downtown. The green is the scene of many craft fairs, antique shows, farmer’s markets, and concerts during the warmer months.
Visitors have a choice of a waterfront luxury hotel or several B & B’s within walking distance of downtown and the beaches. Residents support an outstanding school system, an extensive recreation program, many churches, and numerous volunteer efforts. Madison’s combination of small town charm and urban sophistication create a compelling community in which to live or visit.
