Day 2

Following breakfast, our morning begins with a visit to the Mystic Seaport Museum. This area is more than just a museum, you can stroll through 17-acres of exhibits within the recreated seaport village. The buildings you see aren't replications, they're trade shops and businesses from the 1800s that were transported to Mystic Seaport Museum from locations around New England. The Seaport Village is made up of many bustling maritime trades. From shipsmiths and coopers to woodcarvers and riggers, discover how America's maritime past shaped life today. Upon arrival, you will receive a map and schedule of activities. You'll tour the museum independently and at your own pace. Lunch will be on your own during your free time here. This afternoon we will visit New England's Mystic Aquarium, which offers unforgettable animal encounters, fun interactive experiences, and dynamic learning opportunities for people of all ages. Afterward we will visit Olde Mistick Village for dinner and shopping on your own.


Day 3

After breakfast we will visit the Submarine Force Library & Museum which maintains the world's finest collection of submarine artifacts. Next, we will visit the Shore Line Trolley Museum. This museum boasts a collection of vintage vehicles chosen to represent the history and technology of the trolley car era. After an included lunch, we will depart for home.
