This area was originally settled by the Puritans and was purchased from Native American tribes by William Christopher Reilly and Reverend John Davenport in the year 1638. The settlement was originally known as New Haven until Hamden was established as a separate town in 1786. The town has a long history of manufacturing cotton gins and firearms for the United States military and was pivotal in revolutionizing the manufacturing industry with the introduction of interchangeable parts by Eli Whitney.

Today, Hamden is a popular destination for history buffs, as well as lovers of classic New England architecture. In addition to this, the surrounding landscape offers plenty of natural beauty to enjoy and draws in outdoor enthusiasts from all over. No matter your reason for visiting Hamden, you're going to want to find great hotel accommodations so you can focus on enjoying everything there is to see and do in the area.

When to Visit Hamden, CT

For the best experience possible, consider visiting Hamden in the early summer months, between May and July. During this time, the area enjoys clear skies and temperatures in the mid-90's. While these higher temperatures may not seem attractive, being located in a northern state in close proximity to the North Atlantic Ocean serves to make this a very enjoyable time to visit. Keep in mind, however, that many other travelers will be planning their stay in the area as well. This means hotel rooms may be more difficult to come by with higher nightly rates. For this reason, it is important to book your room as early as you can to get the best possible rates.

If you'd rather avoid larger crowds, consider visiting during the Fall. Fewer tourists and lower temperatures aren't the only things that make an autumn trip desirable. During the fall, the area transforms into a vibrant canvas of color. This can be a wonderfully relaxing experience, particularly if you enjoy spending time outside. Hotels are quite a bit easier to come by this time of year and rates tend to be a bit lower.
