The perfect Mother’s Day weekend, Girls Getaway, or Baby Moon is filled with a Mystic feel good retreat that will detox any late night or reboot before a Big Day. Plan for cold-pressed juices, a rejuvenating facial, a deep-tissue massage, and then topped off with a local jewelry store to custom make that sentimental gold necklace.

Wake up early on a Saturday and head to Mystic Shala Yoga to invigorate your mind body and soul. After stroll through downtown Mystic when it’s just the local runners and bikers taking advantage of no traffic and the serene silence of Mystic before they have to share the historic roads with car traffic, boat traffic, and lots of foot traffic.

Rejuvenate from yoga or the prior night out at Karma Kitchen where they offer green smoothies, cold-pressed juices, light bites sourced from local organic farms, right on the water as the sun starts to brighten the river.

Then head across the street to Rob Rivers Salon and Spa for an incredible facial. Of course known for its trendy haircuts and styles, the secret is in the facial. The Ayurvedic Facial is something to ask for that is not always found on the website. This practice using holistic local products not only cleanses but reboots a glow and a sense of starting fresh.

Bring yourself to the ultimate relaxation and indulgence at the local massage spot Mystic Massage and Wellness. Located a hop,skip

and a jump from the Downtown Mystic bridge. This treasure is hidden down a road on the river. All technicians are unbelievable but if you get a chance to ask for Mary Davis, she will ease, relieve, and relax you with therapeutic music and scents in the rustic riverside building with soft soothing lights and high chic ceilings. Each service is customizable with Reiki, Chakra Balancing Sessions, and CBD Massages to help meet your wellness needs before a big day or celebrating a big accomplishment.

Since you are so close, it is a must see stop and walk to the outdoor patio of Red 36. In the summer the restaurant is completely open and filled with 2 bars, lounge areas, and signature cocktails. In the winter, there are fireplaces blazing, cozy seats, and views of snow covered Mystic. The seasonal changes don’t change the consistent raw bar, fresh seafood, and local brews.

If you are bar hopping make sure to hit up Engine Room, Harp and Hound and Friar Tuck’s Tavern by foot! If you are ubering head over to Jealous Monk or Rio Salado for more happening scenes!

If you need an outfit or the perfect gift for the occasion be sure to hit up Una BoutiqueUna Boutique or Rochelle’s!Rochelle’s!

Finish off the weekend with the girls or for the women you love at Simply Majestic. The local jewelry shop where the owners Susette and Chuck greet every guest and listen to the unique ideas and custom designs to meet every occasion.
