The City is traversed by Route 8, which connects to the south with Interstate 95 and the Merritt Parkways providing access to Bridgeport, Stamford and New York City, and to the North with Interstate 84, leading to Waterbury, Hartford and Boston. Rail transportation and freight service is available to major points including New York and Boston. Shelton is home to many corporate headquarters such as, Perkin-Elmer, Bic Corporation makers of pens and shavers, Pitney Bowes, and the original Wiffle Ball, Inc.

The City of Shelton's goal is to preserve at least 15% of the land as permanently protected, locally controlled open space in the following three forms: City of Shelton Public Open Space properties, privately owned farmland protected by the purchase of development rights, and properties held by the non-profit Shelton Land Conservation Trust. If you find yourself in Shelton to admire the foliage in fall, there are farms in the countryside with pick-your-own apples and pumpkins, also pressing cider at Beardsley’s Cider Mill and Orchard, selling the farm’s famous apple cider donuts, as well as a choice of homemade pies, cookies, fruit breads, honey, jellies and jams.
