Shop the Calories Off

After enjoying Franklin’s, look for a new outfit, home decor, or special gift at Una Boutique. For more information about these shops, visit their websites or Instagram page @UnaMystic.

Mystic Aquarium Visit 

You can’t visit Mystic without taking a trip to the aquarium. This is the perfect time to enjoy being in the company of some marine friends. The aquarium will entertain you for a couple of hours. Mystic Aquarium is home to the SHARKS touch habitat which is unique and allows visitors to touch non-threatening sharks as they swim past. Tickets can be purchased in advance on the aquarium website.

Time for an Afternoon Stroll

It’s time to take an afternoon stroll along the Mystic River Park Boardwalk. Enjoy the riverside scenery as you reflect on your gorgeous day spent in the sunshine.
