Travel to New Haven, CT where you will meet the step-on guide at the Yale quadrangle for an easy walking tour. Among the grads are 4 U.S. Presidents and several hopefuls, actors from Meryl Streep, Jodie Foster, “The Fonz”, and Paul Newman. Pass in front of Skull and Bones, the Yale secret society whose members include both George W. Bush and John Kerry. You’ll be surrounded by the famed ivy-covered buildings. Step inside the Beinecke Library, home to the Guttenberg Bible and see the steps of the Sterling Library where Harrison Ford rode his motorcycle up in the last “Raiders” film. If a classroom is not in use, pop into Chittenden Hall to view Tiffany’s specially commissioned “Education” window. Beyond the campus, you’ll see the Amistad Memorial in the Hillhouse area. Enjoy the elegant ambiance and exquisite services at Union League Café for a 3 course luncheon before taking a guided tour of the Yale Art Gallery and time on your own.
