The stores along this popular shopping street have mostly exorbitant prices. I guess that's great if you're young and rich and have to keep up with the latest fashions. What I do like a lot is the architecture of the Yale buildings, and several great museums, all FREE and worth visiting several times a year.

Chapel Street runs along one end of the campus. The spectacular Yale Art Gallery fronts Chapel Street, and there are many bars and restaurants on this street or nearby. It is a fun area, particularly the section near the Yale campus.

Beautiful tree lined streets, lovely buildings. A great spot to take a walk around and maybe stop for a coffee or a bite to eat. It has a great range of places to eat from Dunkin Donuts to lovely tea shops, to the very sophisticated Union League Cafe.

Nice historic area to stroll, shop and eat and admire the predominantly brick buildings which represent a wide range of architectural styles.

You can get breakfast at Atticus or get a cup of coffee at Willoughby's or Starbucks. Take a few pictures of the Yale campus or check out... More

Chapel St has a little bit of something for everyone. There seemed to be places to eat, drink, shop and to get some culture. Good spot to walk around if you are in New Haven.

Lots of nice shops and restaurants. Only problem is trying to find a parking space. Lots of metered parking, but all were taken.

Chapel Street has lots to look at - many restaurants, coffee shops, book stores and much history as well. Be sure to drop in at Jo jo's for an amazing choice of tea and also Insomnia Cookies for late night cookie cravings!
