Tips

  • If you're not sure when to visit New England, consider scheduling your trip during autumn when the fall foliage is at its best. The leaves start changing colors in early October, and although it may get a bit nippy outside, the spectacular displays of orange, red and yellow make the chilly fall air almost imperceptible.
  • Parking in downtown can be difficult, especially during peak tourist seasons, afternoon and evening. To avoid this problem, arrive early in the morning, or park at the Seaport and walk over: it is a scenic stroll and well worth the time.
  • If you do decide to park in the downtown area, be sure to check the signs: most spaces have a strictly enforced two-hour limit. There is a parking lot located next to the marina on Route 215, across from the Voodoo Grill.
  • Traffic can be slow here since there are a lot of pedestrians, and vehicles get backed up when the drawbridge is open. On the bright side, drivers in this area are friendly: even though traffic moves slowly at times, there will always be someone willing to let you merge in. Keep a sharp eye on speed limit signs: these laws are strictly enforced.
  • Olde Mistick Village offers free concerts at the gazebo during the summer, so be sure to check for concerts that coincide with your trip. Also look for arts and crafts shows, which the village hosts during the summer season.

"Exciting, a whole new concept"
Around The World Travel Radio

"Even though I am a local, I thoroughly enjoyed visiting and learning more about the history of the landmarks. The author's interest in the area comes through in his engaging style of writing. Being able to complete the tour at my own pace made it even
more enjoyable."
Flora Savitzky (Researcher)

"When the conference ended, I stayed in town on my own and used T4M's self-guided tour to decide which things in town I wanted to visit and what to see/do there. The guide was right every step of the way. Bottom line, this guide helped me make the most of my time in town."
Ed Wetschler, SATW & Editor of Tripitini
