New London,ct-mystic Seaport Tour

I live in Connecticut and can recommend Mystic Seaport as a worthwhile destination for the day.

Another little advertised attraction would be the Submarine Museum in Groton (just a few miles from where you'll be docked in New London). I always tell visitors that visiting the USS Nautilus is the only thing you can do in Connecticut for free!

Many thanks Captbill! We are looking forward to seeing Mystic. As a retired 'skimmer' we had a chance to see the submarine museum in Pearl Harbor. I would agree that seeing the sub base at Groton would be a recommeded destination for anyone!

Mystic Seaport is a great place to spend a few hours. You walk in there and it is like stepping back into the 18th century. The Nautilus Museum is also very interesting. Coming from a Naval family I love places like that. However, don't think that you are going to get on the sub base these days. Security is very tight.

[b][font=Comic Sans MS][color=blue]We did the Mystic Seaport tour when we were on the Maasdam this past May - loved it. We spent several hours there and then took the shuttle over to the town itself and toured there - lots of quant shops.[/color][/font][/b]

[b][font=Comic Sans MS][color=#0000ff]Since it was the Maasdam's first time there we were greeted with cannons being fired and the fire boat spraying water. The band played most of the day. Signs were everywhere welcoming us.[/color][/font][/b]

[b][font=Comic Sans MS][color=#0000ff]We took the ship's excursion. Since this was our first time there, we weren't certain about where to rent a car and we couldn't find any information about buses going there from the ship. The ship docks in an industrial area.[/color][/font][/b]
