Shubert Theater

One of the great advantages of being in New Haven is that you don't have to drive all the way to New York City to see a Broadway quality performance; after all, the Shubert holds the title, "Birthplace of the Nation's Greatest Hits." Many, many hits premiered at the Shubert before moving on to Broadway, including A Streetcar Named Desire, The Sound of Music (and many other Rogers & Hammerstein productions) and My Fair Lady, to name a few. The Shubert is the region's cultural life, featuring the best of dance, opera, family productions and cabaret. The backstage tour of this architectural gem, built in 1914, is another highlight not to miss.

Yale Field

From an open field with a few bleachers to a well-equipped stadium - Yale Field has come a long way. Its stands are a true witness to sporting history and have seen The Bulldogs and The New Haven Ravens in action. There is also a picnic area to relax in once you're done with all the sporting action. Don't fret if tickets for the latest game are sold out - you can always catch the action live on one of the TVs at the stadium's bar. Though the stadium is old and a bit dilapidated, its old world charm still attracts avid sports fans.

Yale Bowl

Football fans everywhere are indebted to Yale coach Walter Camp for his 1879 codifying of American football as we know and love it today. Yale's Bulldogs play against other Ivy League teams from September through November, and, in alternate years, the renowned Harvard-Yale game attracts audiences and fans from afar. This is a big sporting event in New Haven and if you have the chance to catch a game, it is well worth it. Tailgate parties start the festivities prior to the match, so grab a picnic lunch and party in the parking lot before the big event. Games are played at Yale Bowl.
