Best Places for Dining, Shopping, and Sightseeing Near Mystic CT


Travel Guide by Glori Law

There are an incredible number of things to do year round in the Mystic area. We constantly update this guide based on our own experiences and with feedback from our guests, who now total over 120 rentals. We have gotten a good idea of what is worthwhile and what isn't. Our goal is to provide visitors with ideas and descriptions that will help to make their visit memorable. We don't get any favors, freebies, gifts etc. from any of the sites we mention.

To the left is the steamboat Sabino that is the oldest wooden, coal-fired steamboat in regular operation in the U.S. Built in 1908 in East Boothbay, Maine. It still has the original engine! It leaves from the Mystic Seaport and cruises up the Mystic river right in front of our house

River Tavern

River Tavern/Chester is a farm fresh restaurant that is worth the hour trip. I would suggest going early and touring the delightful little New England town of Chester first. Chester is a storybook New England town with cute shops old buildings and of course The River Tavern. Their food is all exceptional , but you have to have the fig pudding, which may the best dessert I have ever had! You need to order it when you order lunch or dinner as it takes about an hour to prepare! A fantastic restaurant! Make reservations before you go there. This is just up the road from the Essex Train so would be two activities you could combine.
