  • 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.
  • I love coming here with my family. My niece is really enjoy walking around and seeing ducks. They're friendly and you can feed them and Franklin's General store has great fudge and awesome Gouda cheese to pick from. We also stopped by the witchcraft store and I was very enlightened by the staff there.
  • I always enjoy walking through the village. There is a handful of really good restaurants and plenty of shops to poke in and out of. A few small ponds and local ducks wander around. Great for a family day out.
