West Haven

West Haven is a city with fun at its heart. Snuggled between New Haven, with whom it shares the West River and Horseshoe Lagoon; Milford, where the Oyster River empties into the LI Sound; and the Town of Orange’s busy commercial strip, West Haven offers easy access to all the cultural and retail attractions of its neighbors while maintaining its own unpretentious small-town feel. With the longest publicly accessible shoreline in the State of Connecticut, including the Sandy Point Bird Sanctuary, West Haven is also a leader in coastal resiliency.
