Post advice on mystic?

hi. i'm thinking of taking my gf to mystic, ct this weekend for her b-day. any words of wisdom on a place to stay, where to eat, or things to see or do?

i know this is kind of last minute, but it's supposed to be a surprise (for her and now me). thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

The main attraction is Mystic Seaport, one of the nicest maritime museum in the area. It has a large whaling ship there still. You can easily spend half a day there. Last time there, we went on a "launcher" boat tour of the river. Nice.

To eat, there are several nice restaurants in downtown Mystic, rigth by the drawbridge. I can't remember the names, but one has a large porch for outdoor dining. When the weather is nice, it's great. You can see the river, watch people, etc.

My opinion you must go to the Aquarium(sp?). You can spend the better part of an afternoon there and has been recently redone to include new exhibits and as always the dolphin show is fun. As far as food goes the Seaman's Inn has a great Sunday brunch, and Bravo Bravo is good for dinner. The Mystic Hilton is a pretty good place to stay. Good Luck.

S&P Oyster is probably one of the resteraunts rkkwan was thinking of. It's right next to the drawbridge in downtown, big full length windows looking out onto the river, good food. Mystic Pizza is good for the pizza and if you're old enough to remember the movie . Margarita's is around the corner from Mystic Pizza and has good Mexican food, and has a bar upstairs that is usually pretty jumpin' on the weekends (particularly now that spring is here and summer is coming).

Concur on the Seaman's Inne brunch, the Seaport, and the Aquarium. Downtown Mystic has a nice little shopping area, and there's also Old Mystick Village (right as you come off the exit from I-95) with a whole bunch of little shops.

Have fun - weather should be almost perfect this weekend.

Well, back when I got married, we spent an overnight in Mystic at a B&B called the Steamboat Inn. (At least, I think that's what it was called!) Nice place, near the aforementioned drawbridge.

Then again, considering we just got divorced, this may not be a good place to go.... (just kidding! )

thanks for the help. i'll check out the steamboat inn. how busy will the place be this time of year? will we need reservations at some of the restaurants?

I think this weekend will be the first busy one this season. It's going to hit 90F today, and people are thinking about the beach. Last weekend I went to Hull, MA (well, my town is on the water, but I still love looking for beaches), and it was cold and empty.

One more thing, I almost forgot, and I'm surprised nobody has mentioned it yet: Foxwoods, the largest casino in the US is only about 20 minutes from Mystic. Even if you're not into gambling, it's worth visiting. The restaurants are good, though quite expensive.

just got back - it sure is nice up there. we stayed at a b&b in north stonington. i don't think there's a single traffic light in town. had a great time at the aquarium, saw the museum, and got lost a few times on the back roads.

had my first wrx sighting on the road this morning. a blue sedan on i-95, exit 90 at around 11:30.

thanks for the help in planning a fun trip.
