Located on five miles of shoreline, Fairfield is home to two universities (Sacred Heart and Fairfield University), as well as many marinas and parks. Though General Electric's headquarters are here, most residents work an hour away in New York City, making Fairfield's metro station the second-biggest commuter stop on the line. Families love the highly rated school system, but access comes at a cost: The median home price is almost $620,000
