Where would you go after New Haven?

Jump to last reply

We'll have 4 or 5 days after being in New Haven in August. We like quaint towns, poking around shops (think Carmel, CA, or Gruene, TX, or King Street in Charleston), good local restaurants (not fancy, and prefer not to break the bank -- we're not that into food!). We like restorations like Greenfield Village and Williamsburg, and love old houses (even from the outside, like along the Battery in Charleston or the King William district in San Antonio). We're not into antiques, and at art museums we do what Art Buchwald used to call the "Three-minute Louvre". We're usually "go go go" --- 3 or 4 hours in a town is usually enough (for example, one day last spring, we left San Antonio in the morning, reached Gruene and spent a few hours poking around, drove to Austin, watched about half of a college baseball game, then went to the Capitol and then downtown, and had dinner at the Salt Lick - a perfectly well-spent day!). We do love to find a local coffee-house in each city to sit and people-watch and rest our feet!

What can you recommend that isn't too far from New Haven (since we'll have to return to fly back to California -- likely from JFK, actually.
