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
Tin Tin Bakery and Cafe
Tin tin Bakery and Cafe has made some of the most beautiful birthday cakes I have ever seen. They are low sugar cakes, I guess in the Chinese style, decorated with fruit. Look at the pictures on their web. The problem is lately it has been difficult to order from them for I am not sure what reason. Look at their hours! If you have an occasion that warrants a cake while at the house, call this place early. it is really with the effort!
