I love my town. I enjoy being able to walk my dog as well as feeling safe. There is a good selection of restaurants in the area. Downtown Mystic is quaint with the drawbridge and all the local shops. Living in small town encourages me to support local business and give back to the community. People are very kinda here and very active. This town is kept clean and offers many places for pets. Living in a small town give me the sense of belonging and apart of a bigger family.
There are many great local bakeries and restaurants that prepare food fresh and daily using all local and organic ingredients. There are a few food co-ops that have all organic and locally grown food. We also have many big companies that eventually run other small town business out of business. Although, due to Mystic being a small village, a lot of the mom and pop stores are still around.
