Easy place to shop

I'm not big on shopping, but this was a nice, quaint place to visit. The area is very walkable, and seemed very safe. It was especially pretty in the snow!

I am not fond of touristic places and souvenir shops but I guess this place had something extra for me to like it. It even has a Scandinavian gift shop; the founders of the village came from Scandinavia.

Small shops offering a variety of souvenirs and other special items. It is a pleasant walk to drop in & out of the many shops. The people in the town of Mystic outdo themselves in being friendly & helpful. I really enjoyed my visit to this small village.

Tourist area. Lots of cute shops. Overpriced goods. The super "Vault" coffee shop is here. Worth a visit just for that. Lots of photo opportunities. Shops include a honey shop, Christmas shop, kitchen shop, dog accessories shop, toy soldier shop, kite shop and a number of eateries. There's also a cinema. Worth a look.

Almost didn't stop here -- just off the main street -- but pulled in because of the Visitor's Center. On the way back to the car my wife saw a sign for a Christmas Store in the Village. Well that took another hour of our time. It is one of the largest Christmas shops around the country with thousands of... More

Love this place! My grown daughter and I have been here many times! Quaint shops, cute cafes, a gazebo, a wishing well, and a pond (with a water wheel) full of friendly ducks! There are benches throughout and plenty of shade. A relaxed, unhurried atmosphere. We spend several hours here every time we go!

Loved shopping here! Very cute layout including a water wheel next to a duck pond with some benches to sit and watch the ducks as well as a variety of shops for the Mystic and beach tourist. Had some unusual finds as well as far as souvenirs. For example, they had a honey store with various flavors infused in the... More

I only had time for two shops as time was limited. I especially liked the Garden shop and did make a purchase. They advised me that they ship out of state tax free which I think is a very nice plus. Also visited the 60-s nostalgia shop and made a small purchase. A little too much incense in that small... More

We biked to the Village on a recommendation of a friend to try the Bleu Squid for their amazing grilled cheese and cupcakes. It was well worth the bike ride and the calories. There are about sixty shops to explore. It's a great activity if you have some extra time in Mystic or love to shop!

This was just like any other tourist village with shops but it was adorable the prices seemed right and the shop owners were very friendly. Would love to go again and actually have time to go thru each shop instead of only the handful we did.
