The next stop on our road trip in September was Mystic in Connecticut. It is a lovely place that historically was a seaport. Therefore nice views of the water to be had!
We decided to spent the day at Mystic Seaport. It takes a whole day to see and do everything there!
Mystic Seaport is a maritime museum. The 19 acres of the Seaport on the Mystic River include a very cool recreated 19th-century coastal village. Plus formal exhibit halls, ships and a shipyard.
It was really cool looking around the recreated village and seeing all the interesting places. We could see a 19th Century school (very interesting for Tate considering staring school was days away), an old style kitchen and even a horse drawn fire engine.
I think Tate and Richard particularly enjoyed the 1870s Kitchen. They spent ages in there watching the people make a cake.
We even got to board some ships. I think that might have been one of the most exciting parts for Tate and Knox.
There was so much to do at Mystic Seaport that you could really spend a day or two. For very little people of course things can get a bit boring when you don’t understand or have a deep interest in history. That being said there are things there aimed at kids and even the stuff that isn’t Tate and Knox managed to make fun!
