Chances are, you’ve heard a few things about New Haven (yes, it’s the intellectually-pulsing and urbane home of Yale University). But let’s skip the obvious – there’s more than meets the ‘Ivy’ League. See what we did there?
The Yale University Art Gallery is America’s oldest college art museum and houses more than 200,000 objects ranging from ancient to modern. Free and open to the public, the facility itself is considered an architectural masterpiece, and was the first commission of renowned architect Louis Kahn.
All the world’s a stage in New Haven. This season, the historic Shubert Theatre welcomes well-loved Broadway musicals while Yale Repertory Theatre and Long Wharf Theatre highlight never-before-seen original works.
Cherry Blossom Festival
You don’t have to go all the way to our nation’s capital for your hanami fix. On April 28, the 46th annual Cherry Blossom Festival returns to historic Wooster Square for a springtime celebration chock-full of live entertainment, local food vendors, arts and crafts, and more.
