Mystic Connecticut Motorhome Roadtrip

Mystic, population around 4000, is a small town in New London County, Connecticut. Historically, it is a leading seaport of the area, and boasts America's leading maritime museum, which is a must-visit for visitors to Mystic.

The Mystic Seaport, the 'Museum of America and the Sea,' is a big attraction for those who visit the area. It tells the story of the country's maritime history. There is a re-created 19th century village, tall ships, a shipyard and many other exhibits to tell you all you need to know and more about shipping in the US.
