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

Red 36

Red 36 is named for the water bouy marker it is located near. Fantastic location on the water where you can watch the railroad bridge rotate back and forth for boats and trains.. It is a great place to have a late afternoon drink on the water. I have been a little less impressed with the food I have had there. it is expensive, crowded and in my view not particularly impressive, but many of my friends love the place. It is also one of those places that is so noisy you can't hear the person next to you. There are usually long waits to get in. I think it is another tourist spot.
