South Norwalk is a neighborhood in Norwalk that combines a scenic waterfront atmosphere with vibrant dining, shopping, and entertainment offerings.

Also referred to as “SoNo,” South Norwalk is considered one of the most enjoyable neighborhoods in the region, with its terrific collection of nightlife venues, must-visit bakeries and restaurants, unique shops and galleries, and fun attractions.
