We walked around all day & still didn’t cover the half the area. The architecture is simply beautiful. We ate at Pepe’s too.

While visiting our daughter we walked around campus and it is beautiful. The Library is very pretty. We did some shopping at the Shops of Yale at Broadway. I recommend the Custom Bookstore for Yale attire.
