Mystic is a unique New England village straddling the Mystic River. The portion of the village on the right (west) bank was originally known as Mystic River and is part of the town of Groton CT. The left bank was originally known as Mystic Bridge and is a part of the town of Stonington CT. Downtown Mystic River is comprised of Water Street, West Main Street, Pearl Street and Gravel Street. East Main Street, Holmes Street and Cottrell Street make up the Mystic Bridge side of the village. Walking is the best way to get around downtown and all of downtown is within easy walking distance from this property. Browse the shops then pick a restaurant of your liking. When done with dinner take a leisurely stroll along the riverfront or just find a bench and relax for awhile in Mystic River Park. If you prefer to work off a bit of your gastronomic indulgence, you can easily find rentals for kayaks, canoes and bicycles.
New for the 2014 summer season is the “Ride and Dine” program sponsored by Mystic Community Bikes. Be sure to check out the free “green bikes” available from several locations throughout town.
Day and dinner cruises along the river and around Fishers Island Sound are sure to make your Mystic visit a most memorable experience.
It is a short drive to the historic fishing village of Stonington Borough, Foxwoods/MGM Grand and Mohegan Sun Casinos, Fort Griswold on the Groton Bank, Bluff Point State Park, Haley Farm State park, Barn Island Wild Life Preserve, Watch Hill RI and some of the best ocean beaches on the Atlantic coast.
