The beauty of living at JLOFTS Greenwich CT apartments is that you are in close proximity to Manhattan and still able to live an active lifestyle in Greenwich. From parks to museums to beaches, there are many options to choose from!

Tour the Bruce Museum. While this institution—located near the Greenwich Harbor—highlights science, art, and history in more than a dozen exhibitions, it really comes alive during the summer months when the Seaside Center is opened. Visitors can get a taste of beach life as they engage with a live-animal marine touch tank and aquarium, as well as seashore dioramas. The whole family will enjoy it!

Explore Great Captains Island. This is a must-visit for those who love nature and the great outdoors. Great Captains Island is the largest of a chain of three islands off the coast of Greenwich and serves as a haven for a diverse population of birds including the great egret, snowy egret, and black-crowned night heron. Take a walk to the Great Captain Island Light lighthouse and capture its beauty in a photograph. The town offers ferry service during the summer for an easy way to shuttle to and from the island.

Hit the beach. Greenwich boasts a wide array of beaches to suit all outdoor tastes. Greenwich Point Park is one of the city’s most popular beaches. Beachgoers can sunbathe, swim, jog, or enjoy their favorite water sports under the watchful eyes of lifeguards—as well as grab a snack at the concession stand. Those who wish to experience a bit more serenity while viewing the ocean’s splendor should visit Byram Beach, the city’s smallest beach. Island Beach is also a short ferry ride away. This is one of the oldest parts of the city and has spectacular views to take in. Visitors can also visit the snack bar and a picnic pavilion with tables and grills.

Walk Greenwich Avenue. There’s no need to stray too far from home to enjoy the outdoors. Make a day of taking in all Greenwich Avenue has to offer. The street’s variety of clothing and furniture stores, eclectic boutiques, and book shops are ideal for window shopping on a gorgeous summer’s day. Many restaurants have outdoor seating to take advantage of when it’s time to grab a bite or drink.

After a day outdoors, be sure to kick-back with a game of pool or cards in the J-Lofts clubroom. Feel like staying home? The J-Roof is always a great choice for fun in the sun without having to go far. Don’t forget to tag JLOFTS in your J-Roof selfies!
