The Connecticut shoreline has so much to offer. One of my favorite excursions is down to Mystic. Besides the great "eats" and views, here's a look at what else is in store for August 8 & 9.

The 58th Annual Mystic Arts Festival happens this weekend and it free to attend. It runs August 8 from 10 a.m.- 6 p.m.,  and August 9 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m

The art festival spreads out over two miles and is the oldest of its kind in the northeast. You'll find the works of over 250 artists who come from all over the U.S. bringing more than 100,000 works of art.
