Fodor’s Travel named New Haven as an underrated fall vacation destination in the Northeast. The publisher lined it up with Greenwich and suggested New Haven as a less crowded alternative compared to the cities of Fairfield County.
“There’s nothing quite like Connecticut in the fall. New Haven isn’t just home to Yale University. There are so many fall-focused activities you can undertake in the fall,” the website says.
The travel website’s “12 Underrated Picturesque Northeastern Towns for a Cozy Fall Escape” list suggests that people can get the full fall experience while avoiding the crowds. Fodor’s Travel recommended Westerly instead of Newport, Rhode Island, and Boston instead of Salem.
Fodor’s Travel suggested New Haven as an alternative to Greenwich for haunted tours, pumpkin patches, apple orchards, hiking trails, and the Yale University football tailgate.
Visitors can book a lively Ghost of New Haven tour to hear the city’s dark tales. The list of outdoor adventures suggests pumpkin patching at the Shoreline Trolley Museum in East Haven, apple picking at Guildford Bishop’s Orchards, and hiking in Sleeping Giant State Park. Sports fans can catch a Yalegate football game or stay at the Graduate New Haven Hotel near the university.
The city’s new Hotel Marcel, the first net-zero energy hotel in the United States, was also mentioned by those looking to make travel more sustainable.
Those looking to check out Greenwich this fall can expect a hayride at the Sam Bridge Nursery & Greenhouse, a hike at the Greenwich Audubon Centre, and the Greenwich Wine and Food Festival on October 1st.
Those who live further afield from New Haven may also consider Monroe, Mystic, Essex, Litchfield, and Kent for an eventful fall day.
