Wow, what a lot of stores. Retail abounds in this collection of shops in the shadow of I-95. What it lacks in atmosphere, it makes up for in clothing, specialty foods, knickknacks, holiday and other shops. When in doubt there where your interest lies, they have you covered there as well with a neat general store with everything from hats... More

Wonderful for all the local kids who had a whale of a time. The shops were all open late, and we were able to go round them all without the pressure of having to buy something.

Our favorites are the many specialty shops. Your shopping needs are answers weather it's for jewelry, children's clothing & toys, clothing boutiques, restaurants, and seasonal entertainment such as live music at the gazebo. What's not to like? Check the local paper and website for shopping and special events. You will not be disappointed. Non-commercialized local business owners who aim to... More

The idea of Older Mistick Village is nice, all the shops look like old houses, but it seems like it is mostly for tourists. Exceptions to this are the 2 Gray Goose kitchen shops and the olive oil/ pasta shop. There are several restaurants there. I would recommend the Steak Loft or Go Fish. If you want to shop in... More

Visiting Olde Mistick Village is a must whenever we go to Mystic, CT. It consists of many lovely little shops ranging from cats and dogs to penguins, to Scandanavian products, a general store, a hippie store, little restaurants, just to name a few. Most of these shops are too pricey for me, but it's the ambiance that attracts a lot... More

I recently visited here whilst on holiday with my partner. The village is widely what you'd expect: a series of beautiful buildings, updated to become 'designer' or craft outlets. Prices vary and are generally a little on the high side but given the atmosphere and the quality of the items available here the prices are justified. In terms of a... More

I enjoyed the relaxed pace in the village. Shop through a few of the stores. Check out the duck pond. Go see a movie in the clean retro movie theatre! Brings a relaxed and slower pace to a hectic life style. A much enjoyed visit.

I expected this place to be sort of a tourist trap, but was pleasantly surprised. Lots of small shops with good quality merchandise. Great place for Christmas shopping.
