Parking in the evening is free, during the day was reasonable. There are several different things to see all around the campus but, the beautiful architecture on most of the buildings is enough to enjoy for a few hours.

Yale is a great example of what a top level university can be. It looks the part. Meeting students or professors adds to the experience.

Very enjoyable campus to visit. Not very crowded. I would suggest to take a campus tour and maybe take in some events.

The campus of one of America's oldest universities is like a medieval fortress. A walk around the historic buildings and leafy yards is enjoyable. To go inside visitors have to join guided tours.
