Did you know that Morris Cove section of New Haven wanted to secede from the city in 1959 to become a breakaway town called South Haven? Enjoy a guided tour with fascinating facts from New Haven's shoreline history while getting or keeping fit. Join Shana Schneider, founder of the Fitstyle Your Life approach to fitness, to explore "The Cove" on this briskly paced Fitstyle tour.
A special Fitstyle Morris Cove Walking Tour with Kids will be held on Saturday, July 13, at 9:30 a.m. Rain dates for all Morris Cove walks are the following Sunday, at noon. No charge for children accompanied by a parent or guardian on the Fitstyle Walking Tour with Kids.
Morris Cove is a special place with a unique character, and worth rediscovering. Schneider's route is so interesting walkers may forget they're exercising. She'll keep the pace to about a 20-minute mile, leaving from the Pardee-Morris House, which was built circa 1750 and burned by the British during their raid on New Haven in 1779.
