Downtown Mystic CT has a great small town appeal with its mom and pop shops, restaurants and nearby attractions like Mystic Seaport and the Mystic Aquarium. http://www.visitingnewengland.com/downtown-mystic-ct.html
My cavier-beluga of course! What a remarkable thing to do-go to the Mystic Aquarium and do the Beluga Encounter! I loved it! You go into the water with the big ole' white guys and get up close and personal-a NE must do!
