Logo   Mystic, Connecticut Travel Guide
Connecticut's maritime life, past and present, comes alive at Mystic Seaport Museum, the Mystic Aquarium, and in the pretty seaside town of Stonington.



The town of Mystic, Connecticut, is quaint and pretty, with interesting shops, lots of restaurants, and a bascule bridge that will interest anyone who likes antique engineering.

What to See & Do

Mystic Seaport Museum is one of the top tourist attractions in New England, drawing large crowds every day of the summer.

The Mystic Aquarium & Institute for Exploration features fascinating exhibits of marine life, and on the adventures of undersea explorer Robert Ballard, who led the team that discovered the wreck of the Titanic. More...

Where to Stay

You can easily get to Mystic by car or train. More...
