Quirky little village

I enjoyed this little village right across from the Mystic Aquarium. Lots of shops and good places to get a bite to eat.

This is a great and fun place to shop, sample offerings from the shops, and just enjoy peace and quiet of the village. The friendliness of the staff at all the shops was welcoming. Lots of food choices to enjoy.

This is a fun collection of shops that surround a pond and ducks. The stores are interesting - especially to buy specialty olive oils and vinegars. Also a honey store. Clothes, kitchen ware and all kinds of touristy things. Great to get a snack or ice cream and sit outside for a little people watching.

There are about 50 small shops in this little village. They have restaurants, retail stores and much more. My favorite store is Taylor's Sports, they... More

We have strolled through this area for years. It was fun to see smiling faces of our grandkids in the same place that their father had walked.

I had a fun couple of hours shopping & listening to several bands. The weather was perfect. Plenty of places to sit in the shade and relax. The stores were all friendly and let you browse without bothering you. We ended up buying several nice items that were priced well. The Public bathroom area was in need of cleaning on... More

We went for the first time and by coincidence there was a garlic festival going on. There was lots to do and see with lots of people everywhere. We plan on going back again in the future when nothing else is going on so we can explore without being distracted.

Drove by on the way from Mystic to Clyde's Cider Mill, and stopped in. Collections of small shops, nothing all that distintive that would make this a destination place.
