This is a great little, unique shopping area next to the aquarium. Lots of interesting shops. Kids enjoyed it for the most part. A few shops stood out more than others. Kept us occupied for 2 hours and I spent money on items that I might only put out once or twice....exactly what I wanted and expected.

We went here our first night in Mystic to kill some time and to scope out what souvenirs we might want. It is cute and the ducks are fun. Some shops make you wonder how they are still open but it is still worth going. Bestemors was a hit, I got a set of Dala horse salt and pepper shakers... More

Call it what you will, this is still a commercial district. It's not a very good one. Mostly low end trinkets and other items. Don't waste your gas.

This is a very cute and quaint little shopping village a couple miles outside the main downtown area of Mystic, CT. If you feel like you need to just sit and relax in a comfortable atmosphere then this is a nice place to do that. Otherwise it's a total junk trap and we found no reason to stick around for... More

Reminded me of Smithville in NJ by AC. The shops were nice with lots of local color. Learned from locals that most people leave the Mystic Aquarium for lunch and return after eating in the village.

Walk around, grab a bite to eat, visit the stores, go eat some ice cream, read a book, walk around some more, and it's a pretty awesome day.

I will start out by saying yes the prices are high, some call it a tourist trap but as a tourist I go and expect nothing less, I prepare myself and just enjoy. This is a great place to slow down and just enjoy the day...so many shops, bakeries & restaurants in close proximity and little pathways winding from one... More

The Olde Mistick Village is a cute little collection of shops and boutiques, a nice place to do a bit of shopping. For me, it was a good place to pop my umbrella and spend a rainy morning while hubby went to the submarine museum. The shops have a good variety of goods and the people working in the shops... More

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.
