Discover New Haven, CT

There are truly few places more fascinating than the city of New Haven in southern Connecticut, along the shores of the Long Island Sound. Founded by Puritans in 1638, New Haven is thought to be the first “planned” city in the United States. A grid was laid out over 100 years before the United States gained independence, with remarkable foresight and recognition.

The “Elm City” is a fabulous place to visit, with dozens and dozens of unique features to stoke your interest. Often referred to as “Connecticut’s Cultural Capital,” New Haven is full of first-rate hospitals, amazing live music venues, fabulous beaches, historic neighborhoods, the New Haven Green, and some of the best pizza in the world thanks to the large Italian-American population. You can eat some fantastic food in the ethnically diverse city of New Haven, explore museums, or take your New Haven motorhome rental to travel through Connecticut, other states in New England, and beyond. Both Connecticut’s capital, Hartford, and New York City are less than two hours' drive away, and trains and airports are possible ways to get to and from this delightful city on the coast.

Recommendations for New Haven, CT from Outdoorsy Owners

Kettletown State Park

Very quiet campground with plenty of hiking and a small beach.

Apr 1, 2019
Hammonasset Beach State Park

Large beach with plenty of amenities for camping. Handicap accessible and shore power camping are available but limited. I recommend camping on the west most side as they include the shadiest sites.

Apr 1, 2019
Hammonasset Beach State Park

Hiking trails, brand new expansive nature center, and overall great place to camp. Particularly attractive for camping with the kids.
