Mystic is known for being one of the oldest seaport districts in New England, but movie fans know it as the name of the pizza joint, where they first were introduced to Julia Roberts. If you’re going to bring home one thing from Mystic, we suggest you make it a handmade sterling silver sailboat or a photo from the famous film (which you can purchase in the pizza shop). You can buy “Mystic Pizza” dough and sauce straight from the restaurant to make at home, or hit up the restaurant’s shop for some t-shirts, mugs, posters and other movie souvenirs.
If you’re looking for something a little more historical and cultural, head into the silversmith shops in Olde Mystic Village and find a piece of jewelry or replica of a tall ship, typically found in Mystic.
