This town dates back to the 1600s, so it would be a big mistake to not explore the history, especially sights like the iconic Pardee-Morris House, Fort Nathan Hale Park, Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, and Lighthouse Point Park. Once you have a grip on New Haven's story, you take a stroll through Yale University's campus. While you're there, check out the Yale University Art Gallery and the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History, as these two are highly engaging and informative. Following that, bike along Farmington Canal, shop at one of the spots on Wooster Square, and see a play at Long Wharf Theatre. If you want to party, just head downtown, where shops, eateries, and bars abound. As you look for New Haven hotels, choose lodging near attractions you want to visit.
Your vacation in New Haven may be on the same date as a major festival, such as the New Haven Jazz Festival in August or the International Festival of Arts and Ideas in June.
