Mystic, Conn.: 5 Towns with Spooky Names
A seaport town and former whaling village that's
been inhabited since before the American Revolution, Mystic has no
shortage of spooky sights and events to go with its spiritual-sounding
name. From mid-October through
Halloween, the Mystic Seaport (pictured) hosts its "Nautical Nightmares"
event, where visitors are treated to tales of ghost ships and haunted
legends, or the more kid-friendly "Sights and Frights." You can stay in
the Whitehall Mansion, a bed and breakfast in Mystic that is rumored to
be haunted by the children of the family who built the home in 1771.
