The Mystic Village

Apr 2, 2014

Although the name of this city sounds a little whimsical, but the fact is Mystic village is a popular major tourist attraction with much to see and do. Charter bus visitors can visit Mystic Seaport, Mystic Aquarium, and its maritime heritage, or head downtown for some touristy shopping.

Mystic is home to many marinas, historic ship-captain's homes, galleries, and traditional boats offering day-sails, as well as the infamous Foxwoods Casino. The easiest way to get around Mystic in Connecticut would be by a coach bus, to avoid traffic and the hassle of finding parking spaces.

Mystic Aquarium and Institute for Exploration

Bringing together two attractions in one place, the Mystic Aquarium and Institute for Exploration is an aquarium and oceanography institute located in Mystic. With one of the largest outdoor Beluga whale exhibits in America, and as one of the only four facilities in United States that holds Stellar sea lions, this attraction is a must-visit for all mini bus rental visitors heading to Connecticut.

As for the Ocean Exploration Center, you can see multitude of maps, diagrams, and models from Dr. Robert Ballard's explorations of the Black Sea, as well as the wreck of the RMS Titanic. There is even a Live Theater where you can learn more about the Doctor’s recent explorations.

Mystic Seaport - The Museum of America and the Sea

This is the largest maritime museum in the entire world, which is why rental bus visitors should not miss the opportunity to visit. The most popular attraction at the Mystic Seaport Museum is its immense collection of sailing ships and boats, on top of the recreation of crafts and fabrics done by a 19th century seafaring village.

As for historical buildings, the Mystic Seaport has 60 original buildings, some moved from original sites to this area to be restored and open for public viewing.

Should you feel like a spot of sailing, you can take sailing lessons here at Mystic Seaport. However, if you just want a ride in one of the historical small craft, there are also many touristy rides offered by companies around the area.
