Darien, Connecticut is a town that no one (not even its own residents) understand. Other people who have wrote the definition for Darien seem to either say that it is a great rich town where kids have fun (which is true for the rich residents) and others have said that its a good alternative to greenwich or new canaan because of lower-costing homes (which many darien residents dont even know exist; i.e. the Avalon housing). In reality, like any town in suburban America, Darien has a huge range of incomes per households, and the notion that everyone in Darien is rich is just a facade that the town tries to preserve; it sounds much nicer to say your from a rich town that has teenagers that do alot of drugs and drink alot, than saying that there are also real drug addicts, alcoholics. Also, I'd like to mention that these kids dont necessarily all steal the money from their parents to get those "items"; they sell drugs to the rich kids in their own school and make a killing! Norwalk and Stamford are scary to Darieners, but the only reason they should ever have to be afraid of going into those two, financially normal towns/cities, are when they have to go on a beer run or to go get ripped off by a street weed/crack/coke/whatever dealer on the streets in the hot spots of those two towns. If a Dariener were to, for example, have a job in stamford or norwalk, there is just as much a chance of an incident happening as any town that isnt famous for being rich (*cough* darien). Oh, and in Darien, every parent that has a kid in high school, well, their kid doesnt drink or smoke or do drugs. And that goes to every parent, so when they find out that their kid DOES do drugs, they blame it on the bastard that sold the shit to their kid!! Oh, and last but not least, Darien also has people like me; people who dont fit the mold in this town. In fact, I'd say there about as many Darieners like me as there are that are like the Darienites that I have described in the first half of this definition.
Joe, a proud Darien parent of his son Percy, who attends Darien High School and is captain of the lacrosse team, loves his son more than anything. Joe thinks that Bobby, a hoodlum in Percy's grade that revealed to the whole town that he smokes pot because the Darien Times newspaper printed a half-page article about him being arrested for possession of 1 gram of marijuana, is a shithead/good-for-nothing/white-trash for touching drugs. Joe thinks smoking pot is evil, why don't bored Darien teenagers just get wasted instead of doing drugs, we all know alcohol isnt a drug, right? The follow Sunday afternoon when Percy woke up at 2 p.m. with a hangover, the dad and the son had a laughing fit and Percy told his dad all about last night's party: "man, what a great time!" (dad laughs his ass off)

One of the wealthiest town's in the country, second only to a small suburb outside of D.C.
As in, Darien is wealthier than both Greenwhich and NC, so claiming its some "lesser" version is absurd and done by only those who are jealous of the lavish lifestyle of its residents.

darien is a small town in connecticut, in fairfield county with an overwhelming population of the preppiest teenagers you can find, the most beautiful housewives and the richest men. country clubs, yacht clubs and beach clubs are abundant, and you are considered poor if you are not a member of one of these organizations where you often are not allowed without a collared shirt. darien is next to new canaan and near greenwich, westport and fairfield where the same kinds of people can be found at their waterfront mansions showing obscene wealth.

home to some of the most ridiculous house parties that would make college students jealous, darien also has some of the most worthless policemen alive, who do nothing but drive around and bust up a house party if they are in such a mood. polo, lacoste, burberry, louis vuitton, vineyard vines, gucci, and prada are some of the favorite brands of the teenagers there, many of whom must have been born with a lacrosse stick in their hands.

despite nonstop drinking and partying, darien high school students are often accepted at top ivy league and other colleges, or at least the ones who haven't already been shipped off to a boarding prep school such as Andover, Deerfield, Choate or Taft. the population of darien is arrogant as a whole, looking down on anyone with less money or intelligence or ability than they have. darieners spend their summers in nantucket, martha's vineyard, cape cod or block island at their second homes and their winters at their ski houses.
driving through darien on my way to the real world, i noticed teenagers driving BMWs, Jeeps, Audis, Mercedes Benzes and Lexuses, moms so hot that they could be in their 20s, and a ridiculous array of preppy teenagers and rich, conservative adults on their way to the golf course or the yacht.
A small city in CT filled with people who think they mean the world to everyone else. I live in darien, it sucks. But first of all not all of us are stuck up. There are a few, and I do mean few, good hearted people. But only a few. Most of what people think about bmw's being everywhere and people being brats is actually true, yaa it's depressing.

B: hey where u from, im from ny
A: oh thats sweet, im from darien
B:....ohh..darien, ya i heard of that place, u all snobby bi.tches huH?
A: ya most of us, not all tho

A young gifted man that cares for everyone even his enemies. Always have been and always will be straight up and real, instead of fake. Darien's are usually black, pretty good looking and Loves Asian women. They usually contain a wide variety of talents such as beatboxing, singing, instrumental playing and sports like those who play golf. If pissed, stay out of his way, he may look weak and small but don't underestimate him, the day Darien's get pissed thats the day when judgement day comes. Although, They can be real suttle and chill at times. Also they can get a little 'too' happy therefore causing them to say something like "im gonna rape you" yet they don't mean it, around this time their hormones are stricken. In sexual terms they usually have the tendency to carry huge cocks up to 9 inches when in teenages and up to 16'' inches when fully grown male up to adult ages. They can be romantic and are great kissers. Also if married with wife and kids, can be the best father ever. May also have a strong connection with god.
Bill: Hey have you seen Darien lately?
Tom: No?
Bill: well you're missing out he's a great guy.

Original name of the isthmus of Panama. One of the first ships that landed in Panama was named after Saint Daria, and the region was then named Darien. Keats wrote a poem about Balboa crossing the Mountains of Darien to view the Pacific Ocean.
"He stared at the Pacific--and all his men

Looked at each other with a wild surmise

Silent upon a peak in Darien."

One of the wealthiest towns in the country full of rich kids and their rich families. And not to mention all the kids are preppy, rich, fashionable, rich, rich, oh and rich! Stars such as Kate Bosworth and Topher Grace have lived in Darien. Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston bought a house in Darien. One store in Darien, the Darien Sport Shop, was mentioned in one of the books from the "Gossip Girl" series. RICH PERSON TOWN, I TELL YOU!
According to http://cp_lai.tripod.com/rich.htm Darien, Connecticut is the 82nd richest town in America.

Darien is a small town in southwest Connecticut. Some people wear alot of vineyard vines, lily, and polo. Though some dont wear labels and could care less about what they wear. I am from darien and I am defending my town. We are one of the top Unicef givers and we give to many charities. Quit dissing Darien. Its a sick town that you wish you could live in. THe car thing isnt true. BMWs arent at every corner. I might see 3 a day max. Why dont you visit darien b4 you start commenting. GO BLUE WAVE
What did you do while you were in darien, Kelly?
Emily and I helped out with this charity, did some light shopping, and had smoothies at Robeks.
