Greater New Haven, CT
What do New Haven, Auckland, London, and Istanbul have in common? They are all on the prestigious New York Times 2023 “52 Places to Go” list. With a nod to the human need to explore the world around us, the chosen destinations feature diverse cultural, dining, and community experiences. Best of all, many of these activities are located in New Haven’s walkable downtown. Learn more at Visit New Haven.
The arts in Greater New Haven range from world-class to the downright quirky, and we love it all. As the home of Yale University, New Haven offers access to collections of millions of paintings, sculptures, coins, books, and manuscripts. The Yale University Art Gallery is pulling double duty during the Yale Center of British Art conservation project. Paintings from the YCBA join the extensive collection of 180,000 pieces in the gallery’s permanent collection. Fans of natural history will be in for a treat when the Yale Peabody Museum re-opens in 2024 after an extensive expansion. Through the generosity of donors, all three of these world-class museums are free. Smaller galleries throughout the region showcase the paintings, pottery, sculpture, and jewelry created by local artists.
Theater in New Haven ranges from traditional to avant-garde. The Shubert Theatre consistently delivers Broadway hits and special events. Long Wharf Theatre and the Yale Repertory Theatre produce many original plays depicting contemporary themes.
Our shoreline offers beautiful beaches, including two beachfront state parks, Silver Sands State Park in Milford and Hammonasset Beach State Park in Madison. West Haven boasts a 1.5-mile boardwalk along its sandy shores, while Lighthouse Point Park in New Haven features both a carousel and a lighthouse. If you are ready to hit the water, you can enjoy Long Island Sound at varying degrees of exertion. For energetic rowers, Scoot & Paddle fits the bill. For a little less effort, try the Pedal Cruise, a BYOB pedal-powered party boat departing from Milford Harbor with a swing by Charles Island, one of the many alleged hiding places of Captain Kidd’s treasure along our shoreline. Three tour boats sail through Branford’s Thimble Islands for a leisurely outing.
If you are looking for an outdoor destination without getting sandy feet, head inland, where the offerings change with the seasons. Towns offer extensive trail routes for hiking and biking. Hamden’s Sleeping Giant State Park offers a 1.5-mile trail to the mountaintop with views of Long Island Sound on a clear day. The Farmington Canal Trail extends from New Haven into Massachusetts. Paradise Hills, Gouveia, and Rose Vineyards and Wineries serve locally-produced wine in picturesque settings to quiet the mind and soothe the soul.
If you haven’t heard of New Haven-style pizza (Pepe’s, Sally’s, Modern, and Zuppardi’s), raise your hand. How about the original hamburger sandwich at Louis’ Lunch? And for fans of Cupcake Wars, Sugar Bakery or Sweet Cupcasions? While these are the most famous, they have some stiff competition from locally-owned restaurants featuring cuisine from around the world and around the corner with locally sourced ingredients.
