It may not be a big city, but Mystic, Connecticut has so much to do to keep you and your whole family busy. Mystic is considered a very dog-friendly town with plenty of things to do that allow your pet to tag along. While Mystic has fewer than 5,000 residents, it still has several pet-friendly hotels, as well as nine local veterinarians to keep your dog in tip-top condition!

Mystic began as a seaport village, and much of the town—including many of the restaurants, museums, and art galleries—is an ode to its nautical origins. One exception is Mystic Pizza, a restaurant in Mystic that was also the namesake and filming location for a 1988 Julia Roberts movie. While dogs aren't allowed inside Mystic Pizza, you can order takeout and enjoy their delicious pizza side-by-side with your pet!

Some other can't-miss stops in Mystic include the Mystic Aquarium and Institute for Exploration, which focuses on marine life rehabilitation and showcasing their famous beluga whales. You will also want to check out the Mystic Museum of Art and take in its 100+ years of history. Finish your day with a narrated cruise along the Mystic River, or, if you are feeling extra brave, you can take a spooky walking tour of downtown Mystic!

    #1 East Mystic

    Mystic is a historic place, and one of the best places to learn about this town’s history is at Mystic Seaport in East Mystic. Here, you can explore the museum’s shipyard, walk down the river, or explore the nine gardens. There’s also a recreated nineteenth-century village here! Fido is welcome to join you for all of your activities at Mystic Seaport, but he must be on a leash and isn’t permitted inside the buildings. Luckily, there’s plenty to do outside! Mystic was a whaling village, and there is even a whaling ship you can board to get an idea of how it worked and what life was like aboard the ship.

    #3 East Waterford

    Waterford, CT is just a 20-minute drive from Mystic, and the neighborhood of East Waterford is home to an off-leash dog park that is worth visiting. Stenger Farm Park is an ample green space with a walking path surrounding it, and it’s entirely fenced in to keep your pups safe. No matter the size of your dog, you can be assured there are separate areas for them to play safely with dogs similar in size. If you or your pooch tend to overheat quickly, keep in mind this park doesn’t offer a lot of shade, so you may want to visit when the sun isn’t at its peak.

    #5 Norwichtown

    Norwichtown is a neighborhood in Norwich, CT that is known for its rich history, which includes several 17th-century homes and shops.
