Kent ~ The Cultural Heart of the Litchfield Hills
Come see how little and how much we’ve changed!
Welcome to Kent, a community that has something to offer everyone. Thanks to good planning and committed residents, Kent has managed to become a superb balance of old and new, quaint and chic, old-fashioned and avant garde.
Owner-operated shops and boutiques offer stylish and eclectic goods from home an abroad creating a small town with big shopping. Comfortable restaurants serve inventive dishes with fresh, local ingredients. Galleries feature high quality contemporary and classic art.
From our rolling river with its covered bridge, north to Kent Falls, to the Appalachian Trail and up & down the surrounding hills just made for cycling, Kent offers outdoor activities for those who seek them.
Customer service with a smile and ample parking throughout the village center make Kent a wonderful place to spend a day enjoying the quintessential New England town that Yankee Magazine and its readers continue to rate as a top year-round destination for its culture, shopping, food and lodging.
Thank you for choosing Kent as a place to visit ~ you’ll be glad you did.
