Mystic

Mystic ©
A historical leading seaport, Mystic has maintained a strong respect for the past.
Step off the beaten path and head to Florence Griswold Museum and Elm Grove Cemetery. Do some cultural sightseeing at Mystic Seaport Museum and Olde Mistick Village. Step out of Mystic with an excursion to Gillette Castle State Park in East Haddam--about 46 minutes away. There's much more to do: get engrossed in the history at USS Nautilus, enjoy the sea views from Avery Point Light, immerse yourself in nature at Harkness Memorial State Park, and steep yourself in history at The Stonington Lighthouse Museum.

Discover how to plan a Mystic trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.

Boston to Mystic is an approximately 2-hour car ride. You can also take a train. In October, plan for daily highs up to °F, and evening lows to °F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 4th (Fri) so you can go by car to Windsor Locks.
