Great place to get a little souvenir or do some shopping but both of the restaurants we tried here were awful! The Boardwalk shop in particular is a great store if the kids want to buy a little affordable momento to remember their tirp.

Olde Mistick Village is a totally delightful tourist trap very close to the museum and right next door to the aquarium. We love it. It is basically an outdoor mall with individual shops set in tiny New England style buildings. It is designed to look like a real, picturesque NE village that I'm betting never existed anywhere. This place oozes... More

Lots of little boutique stores with items not regularly found in normal retail stores. Quaint shops with restaurants scattered in between for a bite of lunch or dinner.

If you have never visited the shops it's a great way to kill a couple hours. Other than that, nothing exceptional in terms of New England merchandise.

Our favorite place was the general store, I think it was called Franklin's. We tried a frozen banana from the candy shop- it was delicious! Overall, you can find a little bit of everything in this shopping area.

This is a MUST when visiting Mystic! My husband and I planned on spending the afternoon here and we ended up having shopping all afternoon, having dinner at Ten Clams and returned for more shopping the next day. There are stores for everyone! Jewelry, clothes, cooking and kitchen ware, a christmas store and the cutest pet store filled with gifts,... More

I was able to purchase patchouli oil, a Lucky Cat, and some amazing cupcakse all in one afternoon. I really enjoyed the village but I was angry that people are feeding the ducks scraps when the sign clearly says that it makes them sick.! They should get a bigger sign... but other than that, excellent fun shopping experience.
