Mystic first time!

Hi all, need some tips for Mystic this coming Saturday. We will be spending Friday night at Foxwoods and before returning to NY, I'd like to spend the day at Mystic. We are a couple (no kids) 27 and 28 and enjoy pretty much everything (but nature and food especially). We definitely want to visit one of the lobster shacks for lunch (abbotts?), but what else is there to do to fill our day? Thanks!!!

If the weather is agreeable, you can do a fun and easy hike at Bluff Point Coastal preserve - just past Abbott's off of Route 1. You can take a swim there too.

There is also a neat hike on the grounds of Foxwoods - if you go to the Two Trees Inn they will direct you to the trailhead - it takes you up the hill which is visible from the Great Cedar end of FW - if you look out the window at Ben and Jerry's you're looking at it :)

The town of Mystic is fun to walk around in - window shop, etc.

I'd recommend Abbott's for lunch as it gets really busy for dinner - parking can be crazy.
