Mystic, Connecticut Holidays

Settled in 1654, Mystic was once a shipbuilding seaport village and a safe harbour for tall ships to weather a storm.  Today, the shoreline community with iconic Bascule Bridge is reminiscent of its rich maritime past but clad with quintessential New England charm. Old sea captain’s homes dot the scenic roads along the Mystic River just outside of Downtown’s booming food and drink scene.

Mystic Holidays

Quaint and colourful mom and pop shops and eateries line Main street. An art museum and galleries give Mystic a bit of culture and sophistication. There are diverse attractions scattered all over Mystic’s nearly 4 square miles. Mystic Seaport, Mystic Aquarium, Denison Homestead, Mystic Museum of Art, Olde Mistick Village bring droves of visitors mainly during the milder months. B.F. Clyde’s Cider Mill, the only steam powered cider mill in the US is a favourite fall time tradition that keeps people lining up for cider and fresh donuts.
Throughout the year, local groups put on fabulous annual events like the Mystic Irish Parade, Mystic Outdoor Art Festival, Mystic Eats Riverside Food Festival, Pirate Invasion and the spectacular Lighted Boat Parade during the holidays. We have National Historic Landmarks like the Charles W. Morgan, The Emma C. Berry, schooner L.A. Dunton, and steamship Sabino all at Mystic Seaport Museum of America and the Sea.
Mystic is a popular wedding destination, growing wine and craft beer region nestled between Boston and New York City along the Amtrak rail. There are a plethora of beautiful sights and preserved land to see…Denison Pequotsepos Nature Center, Coogan Farm, Avalonia properties, and beautiful town trails make Mystic extraordinarily hike and bike-able.
