No worries about visiting Mystic with your dog, the town is very pet-friendly. You will not have to skip all the local sights if you travel with your four-legged companion. Plus, there is a lot of walking to be done around town and the surrounding parks so you both get a lot of exercise in.
Wandering around the village of Mystic can make for a pleasant day. Mystic has three historic districts. The Rossie Velvet Mill Historic District includes residential buildings, Mystic River Historic District has a variety of architectural styles and is home to famous pizza parlor Mystic Pizza, as seen in the movie with Julia Roberts, and you also cannot possibly miss the Mystic Bridge Historic District. Although you will have to skip the inside exhibits, a stroll around Mystic Seaport with your leashed dog is definitely recommended.
Furthermore, many stores around Mystic allow dogs on a leash inside. A lot of restaurants even let dogs stay at their outdoor tables. Enjoy sea food with a side of an amazing view at Sea View Snack Bar, dig into Asian cuisine at Pink Basil in Olde Mistik Village, and try the lobster at Captain Scott’s Lobster Dock.
Time to get out in nature after all that time in town. Mystic is close to several state parks. Bluff Point State Park is one of the favorites, where fishing, boating, hiking, and more can be enjoyed. If you keep your furry friend on a leash they will love coming along. The same goes for Haley Farm State Park.
