Memorial Day Celebrations Near CTBest Apartments

Our downtown Stamford apartments are ready for Memorial Day

Memorial Day was set aside to remember those who gave their lives in active military service. Families often gather in town squares and along parade routes to celebrate. The long weekend also gives us an extra day to kick off the long, lazy days of summer. Our residents in each of our communities are fortunate enough to live near some of the best Memorial Day activities in the country, and lots of them are within walking distance.
