History Is Around the Corner

600NHGreen Marsland

The New Haven Museum should be your first stop for a comprehensive offering of all things New Haven. From our extensive lists of “firsts” including the first planned city in America, rubber boots, tape measure, corkscrew, lollipop, hamburger sandwich, Frisbee and the now very quaint sounding telephone book. You’ll learn about the Amistad affair that changed the course of history, Eli Whitney, Nathan Hale and much more.

New Haven is a city meant for walking tours, ranging from a short stroll on the town green to a long afternoon’s worth of ambling through early American history. The compact city center makes the logistics simple. Almost everything you need is within a few strides. The Grove Street Cemetery, the Amistad Memorial and the New Haven Green (including the three famous churches – First Church of Christ, Trinity Church on the Green and United Church on the Green) are just a few steps apart.

New Haven Museum, 114 Whitney, Ave., New Haven. Permanent exhibitions include the New Haven Gallery with the Eli Whitney Cotton Gin; The Amistad Gallery with Nathaniel Joselyn’s Cinque Portrait; The Ingersoll Room, The Maritime Gallery with additional temporary exhibitions. $4 adult, $3 senior, $2 student, free for children under 12; free first Sunday of the month 1-4 p.m. Tuesday-Friday 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Saturday noon-5 p.m. 203-562-4183, newhavenmuseum.org

Hungry Dragons

600dragonboat
The New Haven Food Truck Festival and Dragon Boat Regatta celebrate their annual event each June with family-friendly events, savory food and musical entertainment. What sets this food truck festival apart from others is the Dragon Boat Regatta and its unique waterfront location on Long Wharf Pier.

As explained by John Pescatore, a two-time Olympian in rowing, of the Canal Dock Boat Corporation, a dragon boat is a 40-foot canoe with 20 paddlers, a drummer to maintain the cadence, and a sweep or steers-person. The paddlers sit side-by-side in rows of two to propel the boat for recreation, fitness, or competition.
What’s in it for me? Well, Dragon Boating is super fun, high spirited, and a great team-building experience! It’s easy to learn, extremely safe, and an activity where men and women can paddle and/or compete side by side towards the same goal. Regardless how old, young, big or little: once a paddler is in stroke, he or she is contributing to his team.
Stay tuned for the announcement of the 2019 festival! At that time we will provide vendor information, boat race times (dependent on the tides) and more.
 

Tours

Arts

More than quality of life, the Arts are a way of life in Greater New Haven.

Visitors enjoy arts and culture on a grand scale in Greater New Haven. Works by Constable, Monet, Warhol and other legendary artists on display are just the tip of the paint brush. Prefer your art al fresco? Stroll the Madison Sculpture Mile or download the walking art tour maps of New Haven and Yale University. Don’t miss Hillhouse Avenue lauded by both Charles Dickens and Mark Twain as “the most beautiful street in America“.

There is more to our art scene than the celebrated artists of yesteryear. Local galleries showcase the painting, pottery, sculpture and jewelry created by homegrown artists. The Yale Rep, the Shubert and Long Wharf Theatre produce award winning plays featuring current stars as well as up and coming actors. The music scene includes landmark pieces from the Yale School of Music, jazz at Firehouse 12 and the latest red-hot bands at College Street Music Hall.
