The village has a selection of restaurants, and a theater shows movies and hosts live performances. Throughout the year, you can happen upon many events, exhibits, and festivals here. Even though this isn't a typical mall, modern facilities are available, along with plenty of parking space.

  • Festive and fun. The village has many Christmas trees and other fun figures decorated and scattered about. Should not be missed if you are in the area.

  • Was a blast!!! Have 3 young children and all had fun in the various stores and walking around the village. The stores were awesome! Some were a little pricy but there was something for everyone...

  • I always love coming here. Every season is beautiful. We came here to do some Christmas shopping and see the lights. It was beautiful and festive. The shops are great and so many to pick from. Lots of variety. Its pet friendly also. There are some great restaurants here to try out. It's worth coming here for shopping and to have lunch or dinner.
  • This place was so fun! We went over 3 times on a 3 day trip to Mystic! The location is great, right next to the aquarium. It's not a town like I thought, but a shopping center made to look like an old village. It was quaint and had the most unique shops and restaurants! We ate at the Jealous Monk. Awesome beer and kielbasa with sauerkraut. Great outdoor seating and atmosphere. The next day my kids and I headed to the Cloak and Wand shop (SO FUN to get your own drinkable potions!) and we hit up the Toy Soldier toyshop, and The Boardwalk which has great kitchy gifts and candy and they also serve food. It closes early, at 6pm, so we had to finish up the next day. There's a great personalization shop, chocolate shop, honey/olive oil/vinegar/pasta shop, and my husband loved the beef jerky experience store. The shops are so unique and there are tons of them. I popped into the Alice in the Village shop which is like Alice in Wonderland, and next door is Alice's Haunted book shop. There's plenty of parking all around, it's easily walkable, and so eclectic. I didn't think the prices were too bad, and there are public bathrooms on one end. It was a wonderful place to shop and spend some time. We'd definitely enjoy going again!
  • We always drive to the Village when we visit Mystic. It isn't far away at all and has all kinds of neat shops and restaurants. There is plenty of parking and you are right by I-95 so if you come here after visiting Mystic you don't have to drive back through town and across the drawbridge to leave. It makes for an easier exit from the area in my opinion. They are beside a gas station with a DD and a Dominos inside as well as a McDonald's next door if you are looking to fuel up and eat cheap before you hit the highway.
  • Many restaurants and shops. Located right next to the Mystic Aquarium. Easy access to 95 North and 95 South. During the holidays they have Christmas Lights throughout the Village and its very beautiful.
  • The village is better than I remember as a kid. Love all the Christmas stores, the general stores, fudge, and the Nordic store! A must visit when visiting the aquarium.
