For sure. I don't really know that WP will have the Jazz/Pub scene that it seems the OP is looking for. Stamford wouldn't either IMO.

Well, after you guys' input and some personal research, we're pretty sure we won't want to live IN Danbury or Bethel. Commuting distances are the main questions, I suppose. I've done a bit of research and it seems if we live in Norwalk, we can take Metro-North to Danbury/Bethel or GCT without much hassle? And if White Plains doesn't have the nightlife/walkability, it's certainly off the table. The SoNo area looks pretty awesome. Any input on that area?

Small and restaurants and bars are a little pricey, but it's good and lively and well concentrated. The nice thing is you can take the train to NYC or New Haven very easily when you inevitably get bored with the choices in SoNo. It's about an hour or half hour, respectively. I think it's your best bet.

Train to Danbury/Bethel is tricky if you don't work near the train station. There's not a lot of great public transportation options to get around in Danbury/Bethel, especially in Bethel where you just kind of wind up in a parking lot and it's up to you to figure out transportation/taxi.

The drive is easier IMO.
