I love New Haven! The city is very walkable, so you can get to just about anything you need without a car. There are many locally owned restaurants and small businesses, as well as grocery stores and farmers markets that specialize in organic and local foods.

Fun city vibe, amazing restaurants and museums! Went to the Yale museum and the campus and it is worth visiting. The art scene is exciting, there is so much history and information on the arts if interested. Every year New Haven has a cherry blossom tree festival which is also family friendly and a fun event.
New Haven is a beautiful city housing one of America's greatest universities, Yale. The town has a great atmosphere around the university that attract the attention of many to visit all that the town has to offer. Unfortunately outside the outskirts of the town you can see the economic differences that Connecticut is far too familiar with. The main body of the police force seems to spend most of its time around the university while crime is far too common outside its ground. Despite that the city is very culturally diverse, often having events celebrating the diversity.
