We visited the Mystic Seaport. This was a very interesting and educational trip. The village is immaculately clean and extremely well layer out and maintained. The boats/ships are available for boarding and exploring. There is plenty of signage to make having a guide unnecessary. Parking...More

Lovely quaint town with a marina, original shops and an old whaling port. And you get Mystic Pizza too. The treehouse is nice for a quirky perch whilst enjoying oysters and a cocktail

At first, I thought that’s the $30 admission was a bit pricey, but after spending several hours here, it’s a deal! The admission covers almost every exhibit. Exhibits range from viewing fine art to climbing around inside a whaling ship to fun activities for kids...More

We walked through the town and shops after a relaxing lunch. At the end if our afternoon stay we walked along the seaport area. It was a nice cute walk along the river.

Take time to see the ships at the Mystic Seaport. You will not be disappointed. Large sailing ships and other neat things to see. Then you can walk a short distance to Mystic Pizza.

Taber Inne is good advice, Among the very best restaurants in Mystic are Frank's Gourmet Grill and S&P Oyster Company. Ben has reviewed both. Kitchen LIttle is great also, unless you are satisfied with your hotel breakfast
