Enjoy a Seafaring Vacation With the Works in Mystic, Connecticut

Posted July 24, 2009 by Amy Westervelt

Ct-mysticseaport-def Perhaps best-known for its starring role in the 1988 film Mystic Pizza, Mystic, Connecticut, is a charming coastal town, complete with a buzzing dock, an interesting seafaring history, and—of course—that famous pizza shop.

Mystic Seaport: For a taste of what Mystic has to offer beyond an ideal Hollywood set, head straight for the Mystic Seaport, a 17-acre "living history" museum complete with a replica of a 19th-century village, a handful of historical boats, and various New England exhibits. Single-admission tickets cost $24for adults.

Mystic Pizza: It's sort of impossible to visit Mystic and not check out the restaurant that put it on the map, Mystic Pizza. Like some of the film's stars, the restaurant has had a facelift since the 1980s, but you may still recognize some aspects. And the pizza would be worth a visit even if the spot wasn't famous.

Inn at Mystic: In addition to its full buffet breakfast and charming afternoon tea, the Inn at Mystic offers guests free use of its canoes and kayaks, a putting green, tennis courts, an 18-acre walking and bird-watching trail, tours of its turn-of-the-century mansion, and a pass to use the swimming pool and gym of the nearby YMCA. All that and the rooms are spacious and comfortable, with unique bedding and antiques, and fireplaces in many cases.
