Throw-Back Thursday:  A Beluga Whale At Mystic Aquarium

The most visited tourist attractions in Connecticut are in Mystic CT and are quite close to each other.  The most visited is the Mystic Aquarium and the second place goes to the Mystic Seaport.  And for those that favor nostalgia, there is also Mystic Pizza. 

We have been to the aquarium many times, especially when grandson Raphael was younger and for all of us the most favorite attraction was the  Beluga whale exhibit.

I share that whale below.

Hello Ed - it was a movie Mystic Pizza that introduced me to the city.  Am I remembering correctly?  (Hint:  I couldn't wait and an quick Internet search "told" me I was right 🙃).

Michael Jacobs  Yes it was the same town and the pizza restaurant is still there with 2 signs.  The one that identifies the restaurant with it's proper name and a smaller one that gets it it's greatest activity.


Roy Kelley   Thanks for stopping

Ron and Alexandra Seigel   It was her first movie of any type and the restaurant got a lot of free publicity from it as well.


Wendy Rulnick   It is a very peaceful place and I like an aquarium far better tan a zoo,  The fish are always graceful

Ed I have been to the Mystic Aquarium multiple times but have never eaten at Mystic Pizza.  Is their pizza as good as I have heard?

It seems amazing that the aquarium would be big enough to properly house a whale, I wonder if they are happy in that environment.

Ed, how fun, and did not know there was an aquarium in Mystic.   I had lunch w/Dagny at a restaurant on a lake.

What fun, Ed. Love the video. We never made it to the Mystic Aquarium while living in New England, but I had certainly heard of it. No doubt there are plenty of residents, and visitors, who have enjoyed it!
