Premium Outlet

Hi,

My son (18 yrs old) is doing a summer internship in Yale University which started 2 weeks ago. Besides the museums, he's also interested to visit some factory/premium outlets during the weekend but he does not drive. Is there any good outlet that he can visit using public transport?

Would appreciate any advice. Thank you.

The closest outlets would be the Clinton Crossings www.premiumoutlets.com/outlets/outlet.asp…

The website does say from New Haven you can take ShoreLine East to Old Saybrook then a shuttle to the center. premiumoutlets.com/outlets/directions.asp…

I am not sure how "easy" that is or how often the trains/buses run. We really do not have good mass transit like other countries. Maybe someone else will pipe in with more information. I think this would be hard especially for an 18 yr old who is not familiar with the area.

IMO the outlets aren't always the best bargain... Macys at the Milford Post Mall (just a short bus ride away) practically has weekly one day sales and all he needs to do is pickup the paper (the New Haven Register) for coupons that usually offer 15%+ off the sale prices and offers name brand clothing, housewares and more; Kohls another chain dept store offers good prices, you just have to wait for a sale; Target also offers some good deals... for furniture, everyone goes to IKEA for quality and low prices; Walmart is a huge savings for the basics, cleaning products and more... living in New Haven for 35+ years, food is probably the biggest expense with so many great restaurants and gourmet specialty markets.

I agree with JNSgraphic... The "outlets" are expensive.. you find better deals at the mall and larger chain stores.
