Mystic

4.5
Specialty Museums · Aquariums · Historic Sites
A historical leading seaport, Mystic has maintained a strong respect for the past. The destination is not a legal municipality, but rather a historical one that is home to the largest maritime museum in the U.S. The Mystic River runs through the village on its way to the Atlantic. An aquarium in town studies the life in both of these bodies of water, and houses a friendly family of Beluga whales. Restaurants in the port feature a fresh catch of the day. Film fanatics may recognize a famous pizza establishment here that was the setting for a 1988 film--one of Julia Roberts' first motion pictures.
