When I say Mystic, Connecticut, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Mystic Pizza, the 1988 film starring Julia Roberts?

Mystic, Connecticut is a small, quaint, historic New England village that’s just a few minutes over the Rhode Island border. It’s only about an hour and fifteen minutes from my home in southeastern Massachusetts, making it the perfect place to escape to for a weekend away. Mystic has been a top tourist attraction in Connecticut for years with its restored sea captain’s houses, boating, museums, abundance of local restaurants and other attractions like the aquarium and Seaport.
My husband, Christian, and I spent two nights in Mystic recently and and stayed at the Old Mystic Inn.

Let me tell you all about our experience at the Inn. Continue reading »
