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
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
Local Seafood Purveyor. Locally owned by fantastic people. Oysters harvested just around the corner from our house. They will cook lobsters for you to take home.Always ask what is the freshest fish.
Good Mediterranean food. Very friendly, locally owned. No longer BYOB :(
When I was in my early teens, I was frequently given the task of taking the Boston Whaler across the river to Abbott's to pick up dinner. This place is very well known but is mostly for tourists. You can have much better seafood at home - you can get the lobsters cooked to order a mile from our house at SeaWell
