Kent is primarily a rural community of about 3,000 residents located in Litchfield County's west central region on the New York state line. Life in the area is a mix of rural life, education and the arts, and many have come to regard Kent as the cultural heart of Litchfield County. Downtown Kent has become a major day trip destination for visitors from all over the Northeast offering a mix of specialty retail shops, art galleries and restaurants.
In addition to its cultural attractions the town features old-fashioned ways to enjoy life such as hiking the venerable Appalachian National Scenic Trail, biking the scenic roads, camping at Macedonia State Park and fishing and boating on the Spectacles, Lake Waramaug or the Housatonic River. There are a number of small hamlets in Kent, including South Kent, Bulls Bridge, The Cobble and North Kent. The region has long served as a haven to many second-home owners from Manhattan and beyond.
