Mystic Light, CT
Mystic Seaport Light
If you want to step back in time, you should visit this lighthouse and experience Mystic Seaport!
This light sits on a quay, up-river from Long Island Sound. Tall ships surround her. There are square-riggers, whaling ships and even a seacoast village. There are blacksmith shops, sailmakers and candlestick makers. In addition, there is a planetarium, an art gallery and a well-provisioned gift shop.
Many people drive, but we went in by boat and tied up right near the light.
It was a great place to be!
Some trivia: The New York Yacht Club maintained a station here until 1999; when the building was loaded on to a barge and sailed up to the club’s summer quarters in Newport!
