New Haven was originally settled as Quinnipiac on April 24th, 1638, by a group of five-hundred English Puritans led by the Reverend John Davenport and Theophilus Eaton from the nearby Massachusetts Bay Colony.  The “Nine Square Plan” grid of streets that form the city is recognized as a National Historic Planning Landmark by the American Institute of Certified Planners.  New Haven was named the co-capital of Connecticut in 1701, the same year that Yale College was founded by a number of prominent clergymen.  Today the city is home to nearly 130,000 residents, with more than 600,000 living in the greater New Haven area. Since the mid-1990’s, downtown has been the location of extensive revitalization.


New Haven today has the best of both worlds - the cultural opportunities of a city combined with the charming atmosphere of New England.  Museums, galleries, theatres, and fine dining contribute to a metropolitan feel, while our setting on the coast of Connecticut provides many opportunities for those looking to escape city life, including beautiful hiking trails, bike paths, and beaches. Hikers will find well-kept trails in East Rock and West Rock Parks, as well as nearby Sleeping Giant State Park. For those craving the big city, New Haven is conveniently located between New York City (less than 1.5 hours by car or 2 hours by train) and Boston (2 hours by car or 2.5 hours by train).

New Haven is famous for its varied cuisine, having made several recent appearances on the Food Network and the Travel Channel.  Tourists flock to Wooster Street in the city’s Little Italy for a taste of “apizza,” a thin-crust, brick-oven style of pizza served in New Haven since 1925.  Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana is still churning out authentic apizza, with healthy competition from other New Haven favorites, each of whom has a fiercely loyal band of followers.  New Haven is also the home of Louis’ Lunch, credited by the Library of Congress as the restaurant that invented the hamburger.  A huge variety of ethnicities and cooking styles are represented by the fine dining and casual restaurants of New Haven.
