This is our absolute favorite marina to travel to! Located directly on the Mystic River you can't ask for a better place to sit and "watch the world go by." The staff is happy that you're there and makes everything very easy. The other boaters at the marina are helpful and friendly. The grounds are well kept and the facilities very clean. There is a lot of pride taken in keeping this marina 5-stars and it shows. As for location to restaurants and entertainment, you are a short walk to downtown shopping and numerous restaurants. We look forward to our stop each year to Mystic Downtown Marina and highly recommend it.
Beautiful new floating docks that overlook the Thames River. We booked a slip for the Groton-New London fireworks show and had perfect viewing. A little bit of a walk to the bathrooms but not a big deal because they are located just below Fred's Shanty which serves fresh seafood and ice cream! Only downside was the constant waves from boaters who failed to heed the "No Wake " buoy when coming into the Thamesport and Burr's Marinas. The waves calmed down after dark and made for a peaceful night. Will book a slip next year for sure.
