New Haven & The Coast

 

New Haven is synonymous with Yale University. Founded in 1701, its graduates include presidents George Bush, Bill Clinton and George W Bush. Take one of the free student-led tours of the campus to learn more.

 

Along the coast, many attractions have a maritime flavour. Mystic (see below) is the main one, but at Groton, you can tour USS Nautilus, the world's first nuclear submarine (1954) and the first sub to reach the North Pole. Don't overlook fun little villages such as Old Lyme, where American Impressionists are on show at the Florence Griswold Museum.

Why should I visit New Haven & The Coast?

 

Yale Center for British Art, New Haven
Rated the finest collection of British art outside the British Isles, it has masterpieces by Turner, Gainsborough and Reynolds.


Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven
As well as the American collection, see works by Picasso, van Gogh and Monet. 

 

Mystic Seaport, Mystic 
Go back to the 19th-century in this seaport, with 50 historic houses, role players, tradesmen such as printers at work and historic boats afloat. The star is the restored Charles W. Morgan (1841), the last remaining wooden whaleship around.

 

Mystic Aquarium & Ocean Exploration Center, Mystic
Marine creatures, such as belugas, are only one reason to visit. New in 2012 was Titanic - 12,450 Feet Below, a multimillion-dollar exhibit that brings the tragedy to life. Dr Robert Ballard, who first located the legendary shipwreck in 1985, is based here at the Ocean Exploration Center.

 

TIP  Stop in Noank, where Abbott's Lobster in the Rough is a great spot to eat – lobster! 

TIP  Just inland is the delightful village of Essex. Visit the Connecticut River Museum to see the full-scale model of the Turtle, the world's first submarine, invented to fight the Brits in 1775. Spend a day out riding the Steam Train, then transferring to a riverboat for a cruise up the Connecticut River. 

 

SPECIAL

Inland are Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun, two of the world’s largest casinos. As well as gaming, they offer hotels, restaurants, shops, sports arenas and concerts. Nearby is the Mashantucket Pequot Museum, one of the USA’s best presentations of Native American culture and heritage.
