I've been in Connecticut for a week now and today my family and I went on our first site-seeing adventure. We went to Mystic, CT which is about an hour and half away from our home. We went to the Mystic Seaport which was known for whaling and building ships in the early 1900's. It was really neat and we had fun exploring. Since it was raining we only went to the seaport and not downtown where all the shops are.
Info from the website:
"Mystic Seaport -- The Museum of America and the Sea -- is the nation's leading maritime museum. Explore American maritime history first-hand as you climb aboard historic tall ships, stroll through a re-created 19th-century coastal village or watch a working preservation shipyard in action. Founded in 1929, more than 300,000 people continue to visit Mystic Seaport annually."
