CNN selects Mystic as a BEST seaside escape.CNN just selected Mystic, Connecticut as one of five “Summer hideaways: Best U.S. Seaside escapes.” Very cool and we agree of course.
“Drowsy port towns aren’t trying to make it big. They’re content to sit quietly idle without the throngs of trend-seekers in search of a place to deem the next hotspot. That’s why we like them. Seaside towns are a mainstay of the summer months….

Visit the article to see what CNN had to say about our little town and region. We’re right in there with Nantucket, Massachusetts; Ogunquit, Maine; Watch Hill, RI (our beautiful neighbor); and Pacific Grove, California

Mystic neighborhoods include Pequotsepos, Old Mystic, Greenmanville, Downtown Mystic and Masons Island.

Waterford Neighborhoods - Graniteville







"Ranged along Rope Ferry Road (Route 156) in Waterford are a group of 31 houses and other buildings, predominantly plainly detailed and mid-19th century in origin. Nearly all the buildings were at one time associated with granite quarrying, formerly a major industry in Waterford. Since at least the 1860s the settlement has been known as "Graniteville, an appellation that also was applied to the residence of quarry-owner John B. Palmer. In addition to residential buildings, the Graniteville Historic District includes the ca.1878 two-room Graniteville School and three barns, including a simple small board-sided barn with an unusual stone end and a Gothic Revival-detailed barn with a cupola.

Most of the buildings are plain structures with little in the way of decorative architectural detail. Some date from ca.1800, before the granite industry took hold, and exhibit the three- or five-bay broad-side facade, center-chimney form common in vernacular New England architecture as far back as the Colonial period. The mid-19th century buildings mostly have their gable ends facing the road, and many of those also have little architectural embellishment. Others exhibit Greek Revival elements such as pilaster-and-lintel entrance treatments, full cornice returns, and corner pilasters. Two features normally associated with earlier Federal style architecture persisted in the gables of Waterford's Greek Revival period houses: fanlights and three-part windows simplified from the arched Palladian window. One house has exceptionally intricate porch detail of the type commonly referred to as Carpenter Gothic."

For several decades beginning in the early 19th century, New London was the world's third busiest whaling port after New Bedford, Massachusetts, and Nantucket. The wealth that whaling brought into New London furnished the capital to fund much of the city's present architecture.

The city is home to Connecticut College, Mitchell College, the United States Coast Guard Academy, and The Williams School. The Coast Guard Station New London and New London Harbor is home port to the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Chinook and the Coast Guard's tall ship Eagle.
