Located in lower Fairfield County, Wilton is a town of sophistication, wealth, and people who are better than you are. A place where it is not unusual to see a pair of Nantucket red pants with whales on it paired with topsiders and a pastel Lacoste, a place where collars are undoubtedly turned upwards in the direction of their wearer’s nose, a place where the words “yacht” and “summer” are used mostly as verbs and a “crew” isn’t a bunch of black people standing on the corner. Recently cited as the fourth wealthiest town in America, Wilton is home not only to prosperity, but also to class. Excelling in sports such as lacrosse, skiing, water polo, rowing, and beirut (class sport for the 2004 seniors of Wilton High), Wiltonians enjoy the finer things in life; when they’re not yachting to their summer residence on block, playing squash at their club on Nantucket or clubbing in nearby New York City, they’re undoubtedly enjoying a relaxing sunset in the Hamptons, teeing off at Pebble beach or “becoming cultured” in Europe. Known predominantly for their famous reputation in athletics and their notorious partying lifestyle (see “beat Wilton”), Wilton High School boosts one of the highest college acceptance percentages and mean standardized test scores. Wilton High School students are bread to attend prestigious universities, to match the success and prosperity of their predecessors, and to live up to the lofty expectations of their blue-blooded peers.
"Are those kids getting shit-faced on their fathers' Yachts? They must be from Wilton."
Wiltonian: "America still makes cars?"
under-privlaged child "You must be from Wilton."
Everyone who has said that Wilton is snooty or pointless doesn't know what they are talking about. I live in Wilton, and I admit its no New York, but its a lot better than the reputation its getting on this website. It may have a lot of really wealthy people but none of them are close to as snooty as people from New Canaan or Darien. The houses in Wilton are just as big and with much more land. The houses in Darien don't even have 1/2 of the ammount of land as we have. My mom is a builder in New Canaan and she comes home with stories about how bitchy her customers are. She enjoys her job a lot more when working with a Wiltonian. Wilton has a great sports program and an exceptional educational program. Much better than those in New Canaan or Darien. Wilton is known for its schooling and sports. If anyone wants to diss Wiltonians anymore they can call me up. And about our so called "drug issues" every town has their group of people who do drugs. You are making Wilton sound like Harlem for God's sake. There are more stoners in all of our surrounding towns (Norwalk, New Canaan, Darien, Greenwich.) Before you go and diss Wilton look at yourselves (New Canaan, Darien, etc.) Have you ever heard anyone diss Wilton's attitude? You hear a lot more people say how stuck up New Canaan is. Everyone from New Canaan and Darien have this annoying preppy speech problem. They overuse the words "like" and "um" like crazy (refer to Example.) And by the way Wilton is definitely NOT...more...
1. Best Education System in Fairfield County
Although people really forget about this fact, Wilton does have the best public schools in Fairfield County (see the CT Magazine ratings every year) and I'm sure thats the only reason why my parents continue to tolerate living here. While at Wilton I have had some excellent teachers; two of my teachers have a PhD in their respective fields.
2. Good Parties
As in any small town in fairfield county the parties are damn good.
3. Good sports
Yes, our sports teams are good too. Field Hockey and Girls soccer won States this year. Lax teams are perineal winners.
4. Some Genuine People
In order to live in Wilton, you must have money. Which means you must have a pretty good education right? (excluding stay at home moms) Within this group of people there are some very interesting people who dont just care about money. It is possible to survive in wilton as a non-business professional. You dont have to be bloody rich as in New Canaan or Darien, and I think that preserves some semblance of normalcy.
5. Short Drive to New York
Commuting to New York takes a little over an hour.
I dont know if people in Wilton are truly happy. Most pour all their money into their huge house renovations, expensive cars, country club memberships and 120 dollar haircuts and yet we have a huge rate of domestic violence incidents. Go figure. The only thing holding toge...
A town in Connecticut where police give tickets to anyone who looks like they might be out of town for any reason they can find. It is theorized that 87% of the town of Wilton's revenue comes from pulling over out of towners.
Wilton: Do you know why I'm pull you over?
Driver: No, was I speeding?
Wilton Officer: No sir, you are not driving a BMW. The drug dogs are on the way.
1) A town in Fairfield County, Connecticut where people enjoy country clubs, boating and clubbing. Parents are in denial and always think their children are the best, which results in an egotistical youth, underage drinking and smoking. Kids have too much of their parents money to spend and not enough to do to use it, so they turn to marijuana, cigarettes and alcohol.
