One night in Connecticut. What town to stay in

Wife and I will be traveling from Boston to D.C. by car in early July and have a night and day to spend in Connecticut. What town should we stay and what should we try to see. We are from the West coast and have never been to Connecticut before.

It will probably take a day and a night to get through Ct on the highway during the summer. On a serious note what are your interest?

Mystic is on your way. There is the Seaport and the Aquarium. The downtown is nice. The pizza at Mystic Pizza is good. There are also the casinos at Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun.

We are starting out of DC on 6/29 and heading to Manhattan for 3 nights and then on to Boston. We will be there on the 3rd leaving on the 5th. We have a flight out of DC the evening of the 8th so we have from Friday the 5th to Monday the 8th to get there. Mystic was on our list of places that sounded right up our alley.

If your looking for the small town/village for a day there are B&B's in Essex and Old Lyme and a couple hotels in Old Saybrook. Mystic as suggested before would be a step up in terms of action/things to do from these 3 other towns.

Another small village that is by Mystic is Stonington Borough.

If your leaving from New York--Mystic would be the best place...it will fit the drive time for dinner break...and you'll have a lot of fun around the area.

At first I thought you were driving from DC in which you would need to stop much closer to the New York border in Fairfield County.....

Mystic will be a few hours in from the New York Border--perfect timing to leave your New York location at arrive about check in time in the Mystic Area in the early afternoon.......maybe even save LUNCH for this area...lots to do see and eat here.....

As they say PERFECT !!
