Home to the tall ships of Mystic Seaport and New England’s only beluga whales at Mystic Aquarium, the town of Mystic exudes New England charm. Shop one-of-a-kind shops downtown (with its landmark Bascule Bridge) or at the quaint Olde Mistick Village. Adults will enjoy steamed lobsters on the dock; kids, the chug of the Essex Steam Train or a mug of delicious apple cider at America’s oldest steam-powered cider mill. Catch a play at a seaside playhouse, or catch a fish on one of our many charters. Enjoy impressionist paintings at the Florence Griswold Museum, or a splash of history at the USS Nautilus & Submarine Force Museum.  Or just relax at the beach while the kids splash in the waves.
