Home to the tall ships of Mystic Seaport and New England's only beluga whales at Mystic Aquarium, the town of Mystic exudes New England charm. Shop one-of-a-kind shops downtown (with its landmark Bascule Bridge) or at the quaint Olde Mistick Village. Enjoy visiting the Planetarium and walking through historic Mystic Seaport, or grabbing an ice cream and watching the Bascule Bridge lift to let some of the visiting yachts (such as musician Eric Clampton's on his annual visit) pass under the bridge. Linger over candlelight and an after-dinner drink at one of our cool eateries. You can even cozy up in the mansion where Bogie and Bacall honeymooned. Museums, shopping, sailing, and more! Two of the nation's most exciting gaming resorts - Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods - are within 15 minutes of the town of Mystic. "Mystic Country" extends along the coast to Clinton, CT and northeast to Westerly, R.I., where some of the most beautiful beaches are just minutes from the town of Mystic. Mystic is located halfway between New York City and Boston, at Exit 90 of I-95, convenient for a weekend getaway at this wonderful seaport town.
