A cool spring day in New Haven looks perfect on the beautiful Yale campus.

One of our many spontaneous trips and we were at the Yale visitor Center before noon. We opted for the guided tour as it gives a better idea of the place and a university student was our guide for the day.

With over 250 buildings, its a sprawling campus and we did get to see a few of these while walking around the area – Dow Hall, Lanman-Wright Hall, some of the twelve residential buildings, Yale Law School Building and the Gothic Sterling Memorial Library. Along with the architectural history, the guide also gave us many interesting facts about the student life there.

By the end of the Tour which lasted for about two hours, we were walking past some of the student fraternity houses and their favorite restaurants. We all thanked our guide for a fun tour and bought a few souvenirs before leaving.

Though to see the entire campus, we had to come back again next day. This time we picked up the Blue Trail Maps and decided to do the self-guided tour. It was easy to find our way around and we really enjoyed the time spent there.
