Town of Mystic

Nestled along both sides of the Mystic River and divided by the famous Mystic River Bascule Bridge, Mystic is one of Connecticut's premier vacation destinations. The "village" was founded in 1654, and quickly rose to prominence as a shipbuilding center during the clipper ship era. Nowadays, Mystic has become known for its quintessential New England charm, as well as being home to two of Connecticut's most visited attracations: the Mystic Seaport and the Mystic Aquarium.
