An enchanting maze of shops beautifully landscaped

We had coffee. Went to the Army Navy store. It's right next to the aquarium. Lots of good hotels around the parameter. We'll be back.

This is advertised as a remade historic village. In short, it is a shopping area made from small houses. People from PA will recognize Peddlers Village near Philly our Kitchen Kettle Village near Lancaster. Same thing. Nice stores, but it is a shopping tourist trap, not a historic village.

The recreated village is almost across the street from the aquarium. It's quaint and easy to walk around. What a great way to spend an afternoon. I particularly enjoyed Tiger Lily tea shop. She is knowledgable and has excellent teas!

There are so many awesome shops here! Sadly we couldn't get through them all. Mango's Pizza here is awesome and so is the general store. I purchased some soap my mom still raves about and we had butterfingers fudge!

This little shopping area is designed to look like an old New England Village. A pleasant place to wander around--see the ducks and koi. The shops themselves aren't very unique.

Located at walking distance from Mystic Aquarium, Olde Mystic Village has never disappointed! Large variety of shops, everything from toys, cookware, clothing, candy and so much more! There are a few different restaurants on site so you'll have a few dining options. Great place to find gifts for loved ones!

After the aquarium we stopped here to pick up some souvenirs and found more than we were bargaining for. I am a sap for quaint cottage towns and this place was just that. It was beautiful to look at and relaxing to stroll through. We went to lunch here, bought chocolate from the chocolate store, and bought stuff for our... More

There wasn't much here that relates to an old New England village. It is just a place for shopping in boutiques. But, for those who like that sort of thing, I imagine it is just the sort of thing they would like.

A great way to spend a day learning about history. Take your time and enjoy the experience. Stroll the town and go on board the ships. Quite a nice gift shop.
