My son and I strolled Mystic and walked by it multiple times. The views are amazing, and the ships look great. We actually took a boat tour, and the area is fantastic.

I have visited the Seaport many times. It's like taking a trip back in time and makes you imagine what it was like to live without electricity and technology of any kind. It is entertaining and educational.
