New Haven Connecticut Road Trip on $20 a day

This is part of an 18 week, 7,532 mile, Vanabode road trip detailed in the book from Amazon
titled Big City Wild Country East Coast Road Trip on $20 a Day for just $2.99
See East Coast Road Trip for more pictures, itinerary, maps and trip overview.

We head to New Haven for Yale, architecture, big old city charm, and pleasant May weather.


Above: After some discussions with a local Filipino woman, we determine the best Thai dishes are served across the street at Thai Taste. Once we see the menu, we decide to blow our entire days budget on two lunch entrees.

Accolades and awards fill the walls of the Thai Taste entrance but their interior is neither upscale nor imposing. My red curry chicken and Kelly’s panang curry are the best examples of these dishes we have ever had. I compare these meals to over one hundred Thai meals I’ve had over the past fifteen years in California, Las Vegas, Florida, and most places in between. The meals are astonishing at eight dollars each; especially being this close to typical overpriced downtown restaurants.

The architecture, craftsmanship, and durability displayed in these structures is breathtaking.

Above: The British Art gallery and Museum about a block away is a real damp squib but historically minded crumpet-stuffers might be impressed. There are hundreds of pieces of work here, sculpture and paintings, and relics from famous people. They don’t charge us an entry fee and the gallery is spacious, uncrowded, and pleasant.

We head up to the top of a small mountain just outside of town to take in East Rock Park.
