Tucked away from the flashing lights of the Mohegan Sun, Foxwoods and the MGM Grand casinos is Mystic Country, Connecticut. This quiet corner sets the stage for the perfect escape whether it’s for a girlfriend’s getaway, couples weekend or a fun-filled family trip.
Mystic country is the ideal New England destination for a little R&R during the day and a little spice at night!
Visit the seaport and check out the maritime museum where you can board historic tall ships and stroll through a recreated 19th century village. Or head over to the aquarium for an interactive experience and encounters with beluga whales, African penguins and sea lions. Children of all ages would absolutely love riding and dining aboard the Essex Clipper dinner train.
A fifteen-minute drive will turn things up a notch. You can go bowling at the High Rollers Luxury Lanes where its easy to forget your in a bowling alley while taking in the 5 star decor and cuisine. Bowling not your thing? Get your wobble on at the Shrine, for an affordable club experience enhanced with great appetizers and mixed drinks. For those of us looking for a more relaxed for of entertainment, there is always the option to go to a comedy show, concert or boxing match.
There is literally something for everyone.
