Things to Do in Mystic, CT

Mystic, CT

 

Tucked into the greenery near charming Mystic, Perkins Reserve is the community you’ve always dreamed of coming home to. With gorgeous townhomes and carriage homes to choose from, the perfect place for you awaits in this peaceful and private oasis. Best of all? The beauty doesn’t stop inside the community…

 

With historical Mystic nearby, there’s always something to do, see, and discover just outside of your EG home. From shopping and dining to unique museums and seaside attractions along Mystic River, this charming, New England-style village truly has it all. Take a look at a few of our top favorite things to do here in the fall season:

 

If your family is visiting…

 

Is there any place more magical than an aquarium? Take the little ones into town to experience the wonders of Mystic Aquarium, from sharks and rays to seals, sea lions, and beluga whales. In celebration of Halloween, check out their Jurassic Giants exhibit, where you’ll trick-or-treat in the dark along dinosaurs on the dino trail!

 

If you like to enjoy your wine with a view…

 

Sit back, relax, and soak up the gorgeous scenery right in front of you — in Connecticut’s charming wine country, a simple afternoon feels like a getaway vacation. From Stonington Vineyards to Jonathan Edwards Winery to Saltwater Farm Vineyard, the options for wine tastings and spectacular views are truly endless. 

 

If you’re craving a delicious meal…

 

In Mystic, we believe that great food with great friends is one of life’s sweetest pleasures. The wide range of eateries to enjoy here, including the beloved Mystic Pizza (the inspiration for the 1988 film!), as well as seaside delights like Latitude 41, Red 36, and Engine Room, ensure that you always leave satisfied and happy.

 

If you’re working on your golf game…

 

It’s time to tee off! Whether you’re looking for a relaxing day on the green and are just learning to play or you’re almost ready to give Tiger a run for his money, there are diverse options for you to get your golf fix. Not far from your EG Home, you’ll find Shennecossett Golf Course, Elmridge Golf Course, and Great Neck Country Club.

 

If you can’t wait for summer to lounge on the beach…

 

We may be biased, but we think Connecticut beaches are even more beautiful in the fall… With fewer crowds and crisp, cool air, the peaceful and cozy beaches here, including Williams Beach Park, Esker Point Beach, Eastern Point Beach, offer an incredibly relaxing experience that you just can’t find anywhere else.

 

If you’re a sucker for a good sight…

 

One of the best parts about Mystic is that there’s always something beautiful to see, no matter where you turn. If you love to indulge in a history lesson and enjoy the beauty of art, places like Mystic Seaport Museum, Mystic Museum of Art, and The Stonington Lighthouse Museum make for the perfect leisurely excursion.

From all of us at EG Home, happy fall!
