Welcome to Downtown New Haven, where awe-inspiring innovation meets the nation’s best pizza. Here, connections are made possible, from art and education to cutting-edge research and world-class healthcare. Here, our hamburgers go sans ketchup and bookstores and boutiques abound. Throughout the Elm City, thought is nurtured, imagination is realized, and industries are born.

Located between Boston and New York, New Haven is the smart spot.  There’s a lot to learn, taste, see, and do here. Click around and see what you’ve been missing, us.

So whether you’re still detoxing from eggnog & hot toddies, or simply looking to attend more activities you can tell your grandmother about, Downtown #NHV has something for everyone! 👉 Head to the link in bio for things to do around downtown to keep your Dry January going into February.

#DYK New Haven was the first American city built on a grid system? That was in 1638 & it's one of America’s truly best walkable cities today.🚶With its tree-lined streets & mix of shopping, restaurants & cultural institutions - just sprinkle in architectural gems, public art & the increased presence of vibrant colors popping up in meaningful murals all over the city & you may find yourself wanting to get lost. We give Downtown New Haven a walkability score of 14/10 & we don't even like walking or keeping score. #NHV
