Mystic Seaport, Connecticut Ride
Saturday July 20, 2019
Rain Date: Sunday July 21
Ride the scenic, rural roads of eastern Connecticut to the historic coastal whaling seaport of Mystic. Visit the recreated whaling village of the Mystic Seaport Museum where you can board the Charles W. Morgan whaling ship, ride a steam boat up the Mystic River, view the restoration of the Mayflower II, see an amazing scale model of the seaport as it was in the days of whaling as well as the art gallery and artisan shops of the village. In the town of Mystic there is the Jeffrey P’an Glass Works of blown glass creations plus many fine craft, art and antique shops. You can enjoy a cruise on the schooner Argia Mystic or dine in one of the many restaurants (The Engine Room is recommended). There’s so much to see and do you may even decide to stay the night.
We will be gathering at 8:00 AM in the southeast corner or left front of the Walmart parking lot (as you face the store) at 100 Charlton Rd (Rt. 20) Sturbridge, MA. (Take the Rt. 84 exit off the Mass Pike and follow the signs to Rt. 20 east. Walmart is shortly on the left.) Drivers meet at 8:15 AM for route directions to Mystic as well as directions for an alternate, shorter, faster return route. Departure is at 8:30 AM for the two hour 65 mile fun but not fast drive to Mystic. There will be an ice cream pit stop at about the half way point. Once we have arrived in Mystic drivers are free to enjoy the seaport on their own.
The trip is limited to twelve cars.
When you sign up, please include your telephone number.
