    Mystic, the future of Connecticut's best vacations

    Once a leading seaport, the historic small town of Mystic is crammed with quirky New England charm. Home to the largest maritime museum in the United States, it attracts everyone from romantic weekenders and young families to reminiscing old sea dogs. From your Mystic vacation rental, you can visit the Mystic Seaport museum, meet the penguins at the Mystic Aquarium, or take a boat trip down the Mystic River. After dark, venture out for a fresh lobster dinner and drinks in 1 of the town's quaint historic districts.

    Mystic's no mystery, it's a super (natural) destination

    A popular weekend getaway for Bostonians and New Yorkers, there's plenty to do for a week or more in the charming seaport of Mystic. Book a centrally located Mystic vacation rental and stroll through the historic district, pick up a souvenir in one of the quirky gift shops. Hop around the town's art or maritime museums, or take a boat ride down the Mystic River. Visit in summer and catch the Mystic Outdoor Art Festival. There's plenty of topnotch seafood restaurants that overlook the waterfront, so enjoy lobster bake and local wine overlooking the harbor.

    Sea into the past at the Mystic Seaport

    One of the top attractions in Mystic is the Mystic Seaport Museum, the oldest maritime museum in the country. But it's much more than a simple museum. Sprawling across 17 acres on the former lot of George Greenman & Co. Shipyard, it recreates an entire whaling village and features historic buildings and tall ships, as well as smaller boats bobbing along the Mystic River. You can't miss the Charles W. Morgan, the last wooden whaling ship in the world. The Mystic Aquarium has over 6,000 species of sea life, plus a penguin pavilion and a sea lion pool.

    The weather is unpredictable as the future in Mystic!

    Mystic is a year-round destination, attracting as many visitors in spring and fall as it does in summer. For the best weather, visit between May and October, when the days are sunny and dry, and the evenings are cool, thanks to the chilly ocean breeze. Mystic vacation rentals are often booked up in advance during the town's buzzy festival season and holiday weekends. Temperatures reach highs of 85 degrees in July and August, while the winter months see the mermaid's share of the rain, as well as several inches of snow, so pack appropriately.

    Find peace on earth in Mystic

    Perched on the banks of the Mystic River, Mystic is a quaint and historic seaport between New York and Boston. Overlooking the river on the town's western banks, the Peach Nature Sanctuary is a 45-acre nature park with forests and meadows of wildflowers. It has several well-maintained trails and is great for walking off that lobster lunch. Hardier hikers and bikers should venture north of Mystic to Pequot Woods Park, which has many rugged hiking trails through the forests, and is home to a variety of birdlife, including the American bald eagle.
