My husband, Christian, and I have been to Mystic, CT numerous times. In fact, you have probably seen me write about our trips down there a few times in the last year alone. We only live about an hour and fifteen minutes away, so while it’s still relatively close to where we live, it’s just far enough that it makes for a perfect weekend getaway spot.
Last weekend we found ourselves in Mystic yet again and had a chance to go on the Seaside Shadows Haunted Tour one of the nights. If you are a regular around here, you know that I a
m obsessed with love walking ghost tours. They combine two of my favorite things in one – history and paranormal activity. Seriously, as far as I’m concerned, it doesn’t get much better than that.
**Disclosure: My husband and I received complimentary tickets to this tour thanks to my friends at Mystic Country. All opinions expressed here are strictly my own and were not influenced in any way!
As I said, I have been in Mystic many times, but I had no idea that this community had such a dark past. I loved hearing the spooky stories as we strolled through downtown Mystic by lantern light.
The tour met on the sidewalk by the Mystic River Park (near the drawbridge). Once the tour started at 7 pm, we all headed over to the Park’s boardwalk to start the tour. It was there that the tour guide, Courtney McInvale Reardon, told us a little bit about herself. In addition to being a Connecticut native herself, she is a sensitive and has been connecting with the other side for many years. She also told us about her experiences growing up in a haunted house which was actually investigated by the famous Warren family.
