Destination guide

Head down to Campus in New Haven

Thankfully, you don't have to be an Ivy League scholar to come and enjoy the delights of New Haven. Yale might have put it on the map, but it's that burgeoning arts scene, the sandy beaches, the trattorias of passata-scented Little Italy, and the charming wealth of New Haven vacation rentals along the Connecticut shores that keep people coming back. Away from the halls of the famous campus, there are some grittier, more haunting things to see and do – think eerie graveyards, distortion-heavy music clubs, comedy dives, and jazz saloons. It's an immersive place.

Things to do

From Yale to the coast in New Haven

Every tour of historic New Haven should begin and end in its prestigious university district. The home of Yale, it's got one of the most accomplished institutions in America, and comes with the likes of the Yale University Art Gallery and the Peabody Museum to boot. Meanwhile, there are aged colonial relics to see in the Pardee Morris House, and the well-known Yale Center for British Art, which has arguably the finest UK art pieces on display outside of their native home. And for sea views and 17th-century history, there's the Fort Nathan Hale Park, complete with Revolutionary War reconstructions.


Going beyond the lecture halls of New Haven

Once you're done gawping at the Gothic buttresses of the famous campus here, it's worth delving into the city that lies beyond Yale University. There, you'll be able to go on community-run cycling tours of the public parks, seek out spooky sepulchers in ivy-clad graveyards, hop between Italo-American pizza joints, and listen to jazz in converted fire stations. And when it's time to escape the center, the beaches of the Connecticut south coast are the perfect place to get some well-earned rest and relaxation.


Attractions always beckon in New Haven

You don’t need to head to New Haven in the most popular summer months to see the city's best side. Students will fill up the town during term times, which typically go from September to June, with some short breaks in-between. They breathe life into the downtown bars and jazz joints, and also herald excellent public lectures. That said, if you're eager to laze on the beaches and don't want to crack out the thermals to wonder at the Gothic architecture of Yale, it's worth searching for New Haven vacation rentals in the warmer months between June and August.

Natural features

New Haven is oceanside Connecticut

Whatever you choose to do in New Haven, you're never too far from a bout of powdery-white sands and the salt wash of the Atlantic Ocean. You can mosey on down to Milford or East Haven to find rocky coves and sunbathing spots. Things get a tad wilder to the south-west, where the Charles E. Wheeler Wildlife Management Area is cut through by the capillaries of countless waterways and creeks, and has excellent bird watching to boot. Alternatively, you could seek out New Haven vacation rentals close to the Baldwin Marsh Wildlife Area to have birding right on the doorstep.
