  • A favorite stop whenever I'm in Mystic! The general store has lots of interesting things, including delicious fudge! I've enjoyed many a day wandering through the shops and spending time with family. Feels quaint, and quiet, even though it's right off the high way. Will be back next summer!
  • Super cute place. Plenty of great shops. Like a mini-village inside the village of Mystic. It definitely has the feel of an old world town from the 1800 or 1700's ... There's like 30 or so shops in this small area - probably about 1000 feet from one end to the other. It's a nice little experience.
  • The Village, though it doesn’t have an M. Night Shyamalan twist like the other Village, is a neat place to do some touristy shopping, eating, and drinking. Due to the proximity to the aquarium, it works well for a post aquarium visit as you can just walk over. The shops are mostly touristy stuff, but it is still nice to take a stroll around the village with the duck pond, mill, and the buildings that are all recreations of a 19th century village. The food and drink places are fairly good for the touristy setting as well. It’s a nice change from other touristy areas, so well worth a visit.
  • Beautiful little seatown with it's own drawbridge, several coffee shops,candy stores, art galleries, and lodging options. Locals walk their dogs here, people play in the street, you'll find access to the waterway and beaches, and enjoy walking around this quaint town. Shopping in specialty stores is abundant
  • Great outdoor shopping mall. The Army Navy store is cool, Franklin General Store is expensive but has great cheese and fudge as well as all sorts of New England related products, and the toy store at the far end is neat, too. The movie theatre there is amazing! Leather seats that are plush and oversized! Can't beat it. Steak Loft restaurant is cozy and tasty. Lots of photographic opportunities there, too.
