A Quick Tour: Mystic, CT

Thinking where to go this summer? How about a trip to Mystic?

My husband and I took a bus tour last summer from Albany, New York to visit this charming village in New London County, Connecticut.

Here are the highlights of our trip:

1. Mystic Seaport

We had fun exploring the historic Mystic Seaport which is the nation’s largest maritime museum. The museum is home to the world’s oldest surviving merchant vessel — the Charles W. Morgan whaleship.

2. Olde Mistick Village

This lovely place was designed to represent an 18th century New England village. We strolled the picturesque lanes and found a lot of unique shops and restaurants.

3. Mystic Aquarium

The Mystic Aquarium has various indoor and outdoor exhibits. My favorite ones are the Steller sea lions and the Beluga whales. I love watching the sea lions glide through the water, bask in the sun and pose for the camera.

The aquarium is also known to have the largest outdoor Beluga whale exhibit in the US. Sharing with you a short video of this beautiful white whale…..

If ever you plan to visit Mystic, then I guess it’s a great idea to include the Mystic Seaport, Olde Mistick Village, and Mystic Aquarium on your must-see list.
