Have you tried NY style pizza? Chicago? Well you might not have heard of New Haven style pizza. That's right, Connecticut has it's own pizza style, and it's fantastic. I've been to Italy and this is very close to how they make it over there. Delicious antique Coal oven bakes the pies at 800+ degrees.

Sightseeing
Beautiful view. Come watch the sunset at the top of the hill. This is the tallest point for miles, and it is beautiful! You'll get an areal view of the old down town and you can see all the way to Massachusetts. Also WWI memorial tower is lovely. On the weekend they sometimes open it so you can walk up. Free to go, and easily walkable from the house.
