Both Branford and Guilford, located on Long Island Sound are shoreline communities, replete with all the charms a shoreline town should offer - boutique shopping, restaurants that offer a wide variety of cuisines, boating, beaches, hiking trails, antique shops, art galleries and historic home museums.

Both towns seek to maintain their value and character as they continue the development of commercial and industrial business. The area is well served by major highways, including Interstate 95 and rail connections.
