Since it was founded in 1654, Mystic, Connecticut has always been a prominent area for yachting in New England. A mecca for boatbuilding during the clipper ship era, Mystic is now a living example of a classic New England seaside town. The Mystic Seaport, the section of Mystic that has been in a time capsule since the whaling ships pulled out over a hundred years ago, is the world's biggest maritime museum. And the Mystic Aquarium is a top-notch facility for viewing aquatic life and exhibits of Dr. Robert Ballard's discovery of the Titanic. However, it's not all people dressed in period costume with eye patches and peg legs sitting around drinking grog-there are a wide selection of marinas with all the creature comforts of modern life. So grab the family, tie up, and drink in that New England charm at one of these Mystic marinas.
