Have you ever seen the severed, unwrapped mummy's hand in Groton? If not, jump in your car this weekend! Those shriveled fingers are just a few of the many free sites featured on Connecticut Open House Day on Sat, June 11 (see below for sample free admissions in Mystic, Groton, Stonington). For added fun, pay a small fee to hop on the new Thames River Water Taxi!

If you get here Friday night, take your honey (or hound) to the beach drive-in to see The Goonies! Or check out the new films in local theaters.

Did you know Mystic was "named one of the nation's 'most beautiful towns'"?
