Mystic Aquarium - a great weekend trip in the NortheastFlag review
Looking for an easy weekend getaway on Feb vacation for a couple days, Mystic was the place! It was a two plus hour easy drive for us and the aquarium makes it easy to split your visit over two days. Other attractions in the area like the famous Mystic Pizza and pool hotel add to the experience for kids. Our room at the Residence Inn was great, plenty of room for everyone, a small fireplace and great pool. We had a fabulous time.
Tips for Families
The aquarium is amazing. Love everything about it, especially the whales and the touch tank. We have been to lots of aquariums and this ranks up there with our favorite Vancouver and Atlanta aquariums, but on a smaller scale. Your ticket allowed you to go one day and then get stamped to come back the next day. Great for kids, you go for a few hours upon arrival and then back in the am. PERFECT! We had fun having dinner at Mystic Pizza, bringing my husband and I back to the 80's! We also loved driving the coast and trying new seafood spots along the way. A very cute town along the CT shoreline. We have taken this trip three times now and our kids never seem to tire of it.
