If you are visiting Darien and need a great way to spend a leisurely afternoon, consider the Darien Waterfront Park. This beautiful, lush gathering spot is located on the Darien River east of the Highway 17/99 bridge. You'll see all kinds of people at this popular attraction including fellow tourists, photographers, and local artists who come to paint the landscape of the area.
Along with the park, the area is home to the local Darien shrimp boat fleet, so it's a great place to sightsee and catch a glimpse of the local shrimpers at work. The pavilion and dock are also ideal spots for casting out a line to see what local catch you can bring in yourself.
