Historic Stonington is a quaint little town located midway between New York and Boston, just a short journey from Mystic.

Along Water St visitors can enjoy boutiques, interesting shops, art galleries, and cute places to eat. Dedicate some time to strolling around the town and discovering museums like the Captain Nathaniel B Palmer House, the Old Lighthouse Museum, and the James Merril House. It's also worth dropping into the Velvet Mill where a vibrant community of artists and small start-ups have their workspaces, as well as an artisanal baker, brewery, and farmers' market.
