    Are there any hotels or inns on the Mystic River? We are visiting Sept. 22 to Sept. 24. Any other waterfront lodging close by?

      Hi Kathie,

      You’ll be happy to find a couple options in downtown Mystic. Steamboat Inn is directly on Mystic River, while Whaler’s Inn is very close and overlooks it.

    My great grandfather and great-great grandfather were both ship carpenters in the late 1800s/early 1900s. They lived, worked and the GGF died in Noank, Groton, CT. We’re thinking about coming down from upstate VT for a visit. Does the Mystic Seaport Maritime Museum cover what they might have done as ship carpenters?

      Thank you for your comment and question about your family’s history as ship carpenters…very interesting! The Seaport has a wealth of historical information and a working shipyard where you can watch craftsmen, including carpenters at work. To contact the Seaport directly: 860.572.0711 | 888.973.2767 | info@mysticseaport.org

    Thank You!
