Explore Mystic

Why did we choose Mystic? Well, Mystic was the first place we traveled together. We have been many places since, but we return to Mystic almost every year because it's just so cute and the lobster is abundant.

If you have the time, take a day or two to get to know this New England town. We love it and hope you do too!

Here are a few of our favorite stops. Want more direction? Just contact us.
