Great place to go for a walk even with an infant or toddler. There are numerous spots for kids to let loose and play. They host lots of events worth planning for.

Walked around sea port with my mom. It was a great time exploring all the different ships we could go on. My favorite part was the mini model of how mystic used to look, it was very impressive.

It was historic, fun, and had a contestant from Forged in Fire. On our way out a school was at the blacksmiths building with the contestant. He did great at relating to the children.
