Settled in 1654, Mystic was once a shipbuilding seaport village and a safe harbor for tall ships to weather a storm. Today downtown Mystic, with its iconic Bascule Bridge, is reminiscent of a rich maritime past and clad with quintessential New England charm. Old sea captains' homes dot the scenic roads along the Mystic River just outside of Downtown’s booming food and drink scene.
Quaint and colorful mom-and-pop shops and eateries line Main Street. Mystic Seaport, Mystic Aquarium, Denison Homestead, Mystic Museum of Art, and the Shoppes at Olde Mistick Village bring droves of visitors during the milder months. B.F. Clyde’s Cider Mill, the only steam powered cider mill in the US, is a favorite fall tradition that keeps people lining up for cider and fresh donuts.
Throughout the year local groups put on fabulous annual events like the Mystic Irish Parade, Mystic Outdoor Art Festival, Mystic Eats Riverside Food Festival, Pirate Invasion and the spectacular Lighted Boat Parade during the holidays. We have National Historic Landmarks like the Charles W. Morgan, The Emma C. Berry, schooner L.A. Dunton, and steamship Sabino - all at Mystic Seaport Museum of America and the Sea.
Mystic is also a popular wedding destination, and is nestled between Boston and New York City along the Amtrak rail. There is a plethora of beautiful sights and preserved land to see. Denison Pequotsepos Nature Center, Coogan Farm, Avalonia properties, and beautiful town trails make Mystic extraordinarily hike- and bike-able. Are you feeling lucky? Mystic is 20 minutes from Foxwoods Casino/Outlet Mall and Mohegan Sun which are some of the largest Casinos in the nation. Neighboring Rhode Island is a mere 15 minute drive from the heart of downtown.
