I like to drive through the light display every couple of years. Individual merchants & organizations sponsor each unique display. For $10, each car drives on the paved road around a huge loop by & under lighted holiday displays, and enjoys Christmas music via the...More

What a treasure in the city of New Haven!! This historical Carousel is magnificent in all ways--the music and the antique horses that have been beautifully refurbished! What a gem. It's just a shame that the City doesn't put staff on more often to run...More

Stopped to see the light house. People working the gate didn't know what they wanted to charge us. They agreed they should charge $75.00. What a rip off. The web says $30.00 for a day pass because we were non-resident. I asked to see the...More
