New Haven

New Haven's history goes back to the 17th century, when its squares, including a lovely central green for the public, were laid out. The city is home to Yale University. The historic district surrounding Yale and the distinctive shops, prestigious museums, and highly respected theaters downtown are a major draw. New Haven has developed an acclaimed restaurant scene in recent years.
