Food Scene
OMG you have to try the nachos!!! Actually I haven't had a bad thing their but I live for their nachos. They also have great rawbar options and pout mean drinks. The Fatboys Lager is excellent. They also host themed trivia nights, themed tasting menus and they have a great deck to sit on and watch the boats go by. OHHHH and the brunch!! Can you tell its my favorite spot?

Super chill vibe, great coffee, delicious baked goods and if you like garlic, the Love Salad is famous. Share it with someone you love.

go early and there still might be a line but the Hot chocolate alone is worth it. This little place is out of the way but always packed with locals and college kids.

Locals and tourists flock to Captain Scott’s for the freshest seafood around. BYOB and have a feast at a picnic table just feet from the water. Grab some Giffords ice cream for dessert to cap off a thoroughly New England meal!

Gorgeously restored theater from the 20's with a show every night. You can catch the local Symphony, traveling Broadway shows, great movie festivals and assorted musical geniuses. (saw Kris Kristofferson there last winter. Magic)

Best and quirkiest used bookstore in New England. (seriously people plan vacations around this place) There are actually 4 shops within less than a mile. The main one (conveniently next to East Coast Taco) is a sprawling property with small shacks and a main building full of books, goats, kids toys, basketball and a cat or 5. You can easily spend a day here.

Olde Mystic village is great shopping. So many fun shops. I like the plant store for a moment of Zen, grab food at the Blue Squid, feed the ducks a the pond, by overpriced kitchen stuff and random gifts!

Parks & Nature
a stunning property on Long island Sound, left to the state and now a major destination. The waiting list to use the mansion is 2 years, but you can walk the grounds, smell the beautiful gardens, walk the beach or fly a kite. 10 minutes of walking around this place is equal to about 5 massages for me. Its gorgeous, tranquil and has great views.

Sightseeing
walk along the Thames river, check out the ferries heading to Long Island, watch the trains go by or watch a submarine go past. You can fish off the piers, feed the sea gulls or just sit and watch the world go by. In the summer there is a festival just about every weekend - all free!
