larry_stewart said:Ill be going up to Newport in 2 weeks. We usually browse through the stores in Newport, do a few mansion tours. This year we will be touring the Topiary gardens ( weather permitting). There is a nice 3 mile walk called the " Cliff Walk ". It is a small path, on one side is the cliff overlooking the ocean, and on the other side is the back yard to all the mansions ( about 3 miles, but u can turn around anytime you like).
In and around Mystic, in addition to what has been mentioned already are the casinos Foxwoods and Mohegans sun, In the town , Groton, there is a free submarine museum, self guided tour through a submarine. The aquarium has a few programs (for an extra fee ofcourse) Contact with penguins, where u sit with a small group of people ( maybe 10) and the instructor tells u all about the penguins, as one runs around the room from person to person. You also get a chance to listen to its heart and things like that. Then there is the Beluga whale contact program, where you get to go in the water with the whale, touch its body, fins, tongue .....' These proms require reservations and an extra fee, but if u like this kinda thing, its really cool.
PytnPlaceI remember being a complete Bi#$% to my parents when we went to Mystic. Telling them it was stupid and I didn't want to be there. What a brat!!![/quote said:Brat here too. We visited the Grand Canyon when I was 15 and I told my father that it was just another big hole in the ground.
buckytom said:'bug, have you ever seen the flintstones episode where fred walks by a giant sign that says "grand canyon", pointing down to a trickle of water going thru a small pothole?
v.b., make sure you and lou learn a few sea shanties before you go to mystic seaport. you don't want to get stuck singing "new york, new york".
