New Haven is rife with New England heritage, even our most traditional spots - from lighthouses and charming town greens to world-class museums and Yale's architecturally-renowned campus - become settings for lively concerts and events. Nightfall seldom means bedtime, with live bands, cool clubs, casual pubs, sophisticated lounges and theater performances around every corner. But before you head out for a night on the town, be sure to experience a meal at one of our many acclaimed restaurants, whether it's a slice of pizza or the latest fusion cuisine. Daylight reveals a shopper's paradise, filled with interesting boutiques, curio shops, outdoor outlets and "Main Street" stores. It also reveals a haven for art enthusiasts and history buffs, with museums and galleries for every taste. Or if you'd rather get out and enjoy the outdoors, our beaches, hiking trails, parks and farms provide ample opportunities.
