My daughter and I had a girls weekend in mystic and she wanted to go to the seaport. We had a great time touring the place and took the boat ride around the harbor. We really had a great time

Mystic Seaport is ALWAYS worth a visit. It provides a superbly attractive glance to the not-so-distant whaling, seafood and shipping past of the region. Well implemented, it is ALIVE, with demonstrations like coopering... All displays are very informative, and thought-provoking.

We were fascinated by the living history presented here. All the workers and volunteers took time to explain what they were doing/were involved in. Excellent representation of all the support businesses that would have been essential to supporting a ship building location.

I've visited this on a group tour with several colleagues and was pleasantly surprised with the amount of things to do. The great ships and the whaling ships are awesome. It's a history lesson that everyone should visit during their time in Mystic.

Taber Inne is good advice, Among the very best restaurants in Mystic are Frank's Gourmet Grill and S&P Oyster Company. Ben has reviewed both. Kitchen LIttle is great also, unless you are satisfied with your hotel breakfast
