Mystic, Connecticut

While we didn't go away for Memorial Day this year, we did make a day trip to Mystic, Connecticut.  Mystic is home to famous movie and pizza parlor, "Mystic Pizza"-- which by the way, isn't half bad.  Our first stop was at the Submarine Museum in Groton, CT.  This was a great stop for memorial day as it is housed on the campus of a Naval Base  The kids had a great time and they loved going into the Nautilus.  I don't know how those men ever survived in that submarine...the beds were so close, you wouldn't even be able to roll over in your sleep!

Next, we headed to Stonington for a bite to eat. Stonington is a beautiful little town and they were so patriotic!  We ate at Skipper's Dock which was solid, but frankly looked better than it actually tasted.

After lunch we hit the aquarium in Mystic.  We had a wonderful time, but I must admit I am jaded by the Atlanta Aquarium which is FANtastic.  The kids loved the touch tank and the belugas-- which are amazing animals!
We planned to do so much more, but after strolling Main Street, watching the drawbridge raise and having ice cream at Mystic Drawbridge Ice Cream, the kids were toast and ready to call it a day.  And speaking Of MDIC...this is not to be missed.  They have some crazy good flavors.  I didn't partake,  but this is what the fam got...
  • Sticky Fractured Finger-- Carmel icecream with butterfingers
  • Vermont Maple Nut
  • Ginger Spice
  • Creamy Coconut
  • Chocolate Mint Oreo
