"Quiet Town, with very little amenities"
South Salem is a large and long town. The most desirable section of South Salem is Vista, which is less than 2 minutes from New Cannan. People love Vista, because your not in the middle of no where, you have many neighbors with plenty of room also, you have Oakridge Commons just a little bit up RT 123. The part of South Salem that is along route 35 is very remote. Now that the town has become much more populated and there is more traffic, there has been trouble with route 123 1) being way too tight 2) very dark at night 3) arrogant drivers. They need street lights along 123, so we can see where we are going at night! You can feel very isolated around here. There isn't many shopping options around town, you usually have to go to Norwalk or Stamford or Danbury for your shopping. School District is excellent.
