A historical leading seaport, Mystic has maintained a strong respect for the past.
Step off the beaten path and head to Florence Griswold Museum and Fort Griswold Battlefield State Park. Do some cultural sightseeing at Mystic Seaport Museum and USS Nautilus. Step out of Mystic with an excursion to Gillette Castle State Park in East Haddam--about 46 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: contemplate the long history of Olde Mistick Village, examine the collection at The Submarine Force Museum, explore the different monuments and memorials at Elm Grove Cemetery, and visit a coastal fixture at Avery Point Light.

Windsor Locks

Windsor Locks ©
Windsor Locks is a town in Hartford County, Connecticut, United States. New England Air Museum and New Britain Museum of American Art are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Escape the urban bustle at Kent Falls State Park and Sleeping Giant State Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Windsor Locks: Hill-Stead Museum (in Farmington), Dinosaur State Park (in Rocky Hill) and Yale Center for British Art (in New Haven). There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at The Mark Twain House & Museum and admire the natural beauty at Elizabeth Park.

Getting from Mystic to Windsor Locks by car takes about 1.5 hours. Expect a daytime high around 66°F in October, and nighttime lows around 44°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 7th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
