New Haven is renowned for its incredible array of activities, abundance of award-winning dining options, and impressive boutique shopping. As a resident at one of our Metro on Crown luxury apartments on Crown Street in New Haven, you have direct access to all of it. But it’s not just the daily activities that make New Haven one of the greatest small cities in the country—we have some pretty spectacular annual events too. Here are a few amazing events near Metro on Crown that will keep you entertained throughout the beautiful autumn season.
The Durham Fair
Taking place September 22 through September 25, 2016, the Durham Agricultural Fair is a festivity not to be missed. A mere 30-minute drive away from Crown Street in New Haven, the Durham Fair has become a tradition for New Haven residents. The largest fair in Connecticut offers something for everyone, including rides and games (for kids and adults), animal competitions, and live entertainment. This year’s headliners include Foreigner and Old Dominion. Of course, you will also enjoy the mouthwatering, can-only-get-at-the-fair food, exhibits, and shopping galore.
The Haunted Isle
As it gets closer to Halloween, the Haunted Isle at the Shore Line Trolley is the place to be. It takes place in East Haven, just a hop, skip, and jump away from our Metro on Crown luxury apartments. The Haunted Isle runs every weekend from September 30 to October 30, 2016, and it will bring your worst nightmares to life. One lowly trolley will transport you through the dark tracks to the gate of the Haunted Isle, where you will then walk through a wooded path without a light in sight. Ghosts, goblins, and other creatures will be lurking in the shadows, waiting to pounce when you least expect it. But it is important to only enter if you dare, because there are no refunds for scaredy-cats.
One of the most anticipated events at our Metro on Crown luxury apartments at Crown Street in New Haven is the annual Fall Restaurant Week. This year it runs from October 20 through November 4, and you will want to plan ahead since reservations are strongly recommended. About 30 of New Haven’s finest restaurants feature prix fixe menus for both lunch ($20.16*) and dinner ($34*), which usually include an appetizer, entrée, and dessert (taxes and gratuities additional). It’s an amazing way to experience all of the award-winning cuisine Crown Street in New Haven has to offer.
