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)

A city in CT (pronounced dairy anne) characterized by preppy douchebags, blonde girls with fake tans, and more wealth amassed than could ever be spent in a lifetime (though the inhabitants try very hard). Darien is NOT like every other city as some would have you believe, rather it is unique in its own self-righteous way. Teenagers in Darien usually have cars worth more than most people make in a year, popped collars, ugg boots and pink khaki shorts. Darien can't compete in any sport save lacrosse but the students are somehow under the impression that they're very good at everything. There's not much to do in Darien so weekends are mostly spent at lame house parties drinking excessive amounts of alcohol and getting high on overpriced drugs. Darienites claim to be very philanthropic but really most inhabitants don't know charity is. Living in Darien is like living in a bubble and as a high school student that moved in I find it amazing how detached from the real world these people are. Darienites can often be seen yelling things such as "GO BLUE WAVE!" or "BLUE WAVE FOR LIFE" or "IM GONNA POP MY COLLAR CUZ IM A PREPPY FUCKTARD!". Not a place that any reasonable person would want to live. If you masturbate with a lacrosse stick, own fifteen pairs of pink khaki pants, and blend money into your pancakes then Darien just might be the place for you.
Darienite: "People who criticize Darien are just jealous! BLUE WAVE FOR LIFE!!"

Everyone Else: "Shut the fuck up you self-righteous cuntsicle. Get off your high horse."

Darien is a small town in southern connecticut. It is home to probably the richest people in the state of Connecticut, and maybe even new England. The parents usually work as the heads of massive corporations, and are envied by many other towns, such as new Canaan and Greenwich. The teenagers in Darien always excel in various sports, such as lacrosse, basketball, softball/baseball, swimming, and soccer. There are zero homes in Darien worth less than 600,000$, and most of them are waterfront. It is basically the life every single person has dreamed of, with the best public and private school system in the country, and with all the high school student graduates getting accepted into top ivy league colleges, despite the drinking house parties that are probably the best house parties anyone could ever dream of having. In conclusion, Darien is one of the top towns in the country, and probably everyone who knows about it has once dreamed of living there.

A town in Connecticut that claims they are filthy rich, preppy and the best at lacrosse. Although, if they came to Maryland (specifically Potomac) would be amazed of how they are actually just upper-middle class. The Connecticut wannabes should come a little down south and see what real wealth and class is. Also, Maryland/DC is home to the top prep schools in the US which are usually ranked 1 or in the top 5 for high school lax. Schools such as Landon, Bullis, Boys Latin, Loyola Blakefield, Georgetown Prep and Gonzaga etc.
Darien kid: I got a 2400 on my SAT and got into Princeton

Potomac kid: Did I take that test? Fuck it, I'm still going

Darien is a small town in Conneticut. Most teenagers belong to wealthy families.

Darien girls who have money and parents that buy them nice things are mostly bitches. The town has some down to earth teenagers who just like to hang out at each others houses. 4/10 families have children who are very nice and respectable. 1/10 families have their children work every weekend stacking wood,building fires, "volunteering" as waitresses at church events.

Darien has some wild parties but also some are lame. Some Darien kids go to Stamford to go to a movie since Darien has 1 movie theater which shows only 2 movies at a time.

Darien has been a popular location for movies that need a rich suburban town
