Out-of-State visitors use our website as a digital directory. Your business is one of the first things they see when making decisions about their choice destinations. Our business community uses the website for referrals, as well as a guide to shopping and dining local. Our Welcome Center is another way we refer travelers to local businesses, events and attractions throughout the Mystic, Connecticut region.
Our Welcome Center serviced over 10,000 visitors and referred visitors to more than 100 local businesses since 2017
