Local Attractions

New Haven, with its New England charm and cosmopolitan energy, quaint commercial districts, serene residential streets, the famous New Haven Green, and landmarks of American history are only a few of the highlights of a place that has given the world the hamburger, the lollipop, the corkscrew, and the world’s best pizza (and we can tell you where to find them!). Get to know the New Haven community and enjoy some of New Haven’s wonderful restaurants, shops, and cultural attractions during your visit.

Yale University has been a part of the New Haven community for three centuries. Its 11,000 students come from all 50 American states and from 108 countries. The 3,200-member faculty is a richly diverse group of men and women who are leaders in their respective fields.

Yale’s buildings, towers, lawns, courtyards, walkways, gates, and arches comprise what one architecture critic has called “the most beautiful urban campus in America. ​The University also maintains over 600 acres (243 hectares) of athletic fields and natural preserves just a short bus ride from the center of town.


Yale Repertory Theatre, the internationally celebrated professional theatre in residence at Yale School of Drama, has championed new work since 1966, producing well over 100 premieres—including two Pulitzer Prize winners and four other nominated finalists—by emerging and established playwrights. 

The Yale Rep's, "Manahatta", is the third production of the season. “Manahatta” is a suspenseful and sweeping tale about the attempted eradication of Native culture.

Ingalls Rink

Named after former Yale men's ice hockey captains David S. Ingalls '20 and David S. Ingalls Jr. '56, the rink was designed by famed architect Eero Saarinen '34 and built in 1959. Gifts from the Ingalls family provided the bulk of the funding for its construction. Since hosting its first intercollegiate game on December 3, 1958, when the Bulldogs faced Northeastern, the rink has been an architectural marvel. The arena gets its distinctive exterior look from a humpbacked roof, supported by a 300-foot backbone.

Yale University Art Gallery

The mission of the Yale University Art Gallery is to encourage appreciation and understanding of art and its role in society through direct engagement with original works of art. The Gallery stimulates active learning about art and the creative process through research, teaching, and dialogue among communities of Yale students, faculty, artists, scholars, alumni, and the wider public. The Gallery organizes exhibitions and educational programs to offer enjoyment and encourage inquiry, while building and maintaining its collections in trust for future generations.

The Yale Center for British Art
