You probably already heard it has "the largest art collection outside of the U.K." If that is not enough to motivate you to leave the comfort of your cozy suite, you should know that the museum itself is a work of architectural art, and the Yale University Art Gallery is just across the street! Come on - that cozy looking mattress will be waiting for you when you get back!”

Grocery or Supermarket
“We hate to say it, but sometimes the local grocery doesn't have that brand you like at the price you can afford. If they don't, try Stop & Shop. They have a huge selection of groceries at affordable prices. ”

Pizza Place
“All things considered, this might be your favorite place to dance, eat, and drink in New Haven. The vibe is lit, the pizza is scrumptious, the beer selection is fantastic, and the prices are great. Looking to recreated that college night out magic for the reunion or just looking to dance the night away with some friends? BAR is the place to go!”
