What’s Going On: Pushing the borders of tourism beyond Mystic
9 May 2023
Bruce Flax was looking relaxed and fit the day I met him for coffee last month at the Lamplighter Trading Company in downtown Mystic, where the Green Marble Coffee House got its groove on for many years.
Flax, president of the 625-member Greater Mystic Chamber of Commerce, had wanted to show me the Mystic Chamber Bascule Bridge Visitors Center at 4 E. Main St., where Mystical Toys once held sway. It’s a bright place with gleaming wood floors where visitors can peruse brochures, buy Mystic-related books, check out videos and gaze at (or buy) works by local artists.
