Description

Explore Yale and Downtown New Haven with a local expert AND rack up nearly 5,000 steps! You'll forget that you're even exercising as you learn more about Yale and New Haven's culture, architecture, and history during this briskly paced walking tour. You'll be guided by a Yale alumna, New Haven resident and certified group fitness instructor. She'll take you along paths that crisscross campus and remind you about your posture along the way! She'll keep you moving at about a 20-minute mile pace on paved paths and sidewalks; there may be one "fitness" hill, but it's worth the view.

Meet your guide near Temple Plaza in the heart of downtown New Haven, then set off on your 1-hour fitness walking tour to explore the campus of world-renowned Yale university and a city filled with history, art and national landmarks. 

You'll cross the Farmington Canal Trail and see the two newest residential colleges at Yale.  Walking along a path that even most locals haven't taken will lead you to a street known as one of the most beautiful in America.

From there, you'll head to Yale's Science Hill and be greeted by the towering Torosaurus bronze statue at the Peabody Museum of Natural History.  You'll walk up our "fitness" hill to the Yale Farm and circle back down to the heart of Yale campus and New Haven.

Along the way, you'll see some of the most iconic Yale buildings including Sterling Memorial Library, Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library, and Ingalls Rink.

Finish the tour in the Broadway and Chapel Street Historic Districts, populated with museums, theaters, boutiques, and one-of-a-kind restaurants. After a brief stretch, you'll be led back to Temple Plaza.
