    Homogenized white bread version of a pseudo old fashioned town. We visited the Christmas store. Had an overpriced ice cream cone at the ice cream shop (shoppe?) served by a nonsmiling, curt server. I ...  more »

    Nice little shopping area filled with small local business. Some history mixed with relaxation. You can walk along the paths visiting all the stores in between and rest along way by the small pond, on the rock wall or a bench and watch the ducks or have some ice cream at a picnic table. Great place for tourists and nice souvenirs. Nice for whole family. Right off highway, surrounded by hotels, restaurants, Mystic Aquarium and more.

    Attended the annual "Taste of Mystic" at Olde Mystic Village. This area holds a special place in my heart since I met my wife at the USCGA in 1981 and we spent may of our first dates here at the Village. The event was great with a lot of different food vendors to satisfy any palate. My only issue was some of the portion sizes were a little skimpy for what you were paying. The live music was wonderful. There have been many new shoppes and restaurants lately. the one that stands out is "Sticky Situations" which sells a wide variety of honeys, syrups, olive oils and vinegars. This is must see if at the village!

    It's a charming, mystical (see what I did there?) place to go and see, and the shops are good for a gander, but in the end it's your typical run of the mill tourist trap of souvenirs and food... Good food, though!! ESPECIALLY Pink Basil... Love that place!! There are a few off the wall shops I frequent, that aren't so touristy, but they are few and far between. However, the feel and atmosphere alone are worth a stop.

    We visit this village primarily on our way to the Steak Loft for dinner. There is some talk about revamping the overall area so that it becomes more pedestrian friendly. There are many outdoor events held during the tourist season. The Village itself doesn't look as if it's changed much over the years but seems to suit it's purpose.

    One of the few places you can walk outside without being hit by cars. The outdoor mall, makes for a nice stroll with the kids, and a great shopping experience. Come a feed the ducks or fish; stay get a bite to eat; see a movie; or just buy some gifts. There is something here for everyone.
