Dust off your preppy pea coat and frolic among the ivy this weekend—the Ivy League, that is. Of course, New York has Columbia, but for a full taste of the small-town Ivy experience, complete with rah-rah football games and a cappella concerts, head to nearby New Haven.

New Haven is, of course, famed for its pizza—there’s an ongoing rivalry between Pepe’s and Sally’s on Wooster, though many New Haven residents are loyal to Bar and Modern Apizza. And if you like clams, be sure to try a white clam pizza, one of the local specialties or a “plain pizza,” which has no cheese, save for a dusting of Pecorino-Romano. Take in the art at the Yale University Art Gallery, an architectural artwork itself, designed by Louis I. Kahn and considered his first significant commission. Kahn also designed the Yale Center for British Art, across the street. Both buildings have magnificent interiors and the holdings to match. Or cheer on the Bulldogs when they play the Columbia Lions on October 30 or the Princeton Tigers on November 13 at the Yale Bowl. For another true Ivy tradition, track down a Whiffenpoofs concert and listen to 14 men, all Yale seniors, sing their a cappella hearts out.
