Mystic Knotwork Named in Yankee Magazine's 'Best of New England' Travel Guide

Mystic, CT – Local company Mystic Knotwork has been named by Yankee Magazine in its annual Best of New England summer travel guide (May/June 2019).

From the sandy beaches of Cape Cod to New Hampshire’s White Mountains and Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom, Yankee’s annual guide is the ultimate collection of epic destinations and getaways. With nearly 200 tips and ideas from the magazine’s expert editors, the travel guide is brimming with recommendations on the best family-friendly activities, seaside hotels, luxury escapes, dining hot spots, historical attractions, and more - all in the New England region.

Mystic Knotwork was selected in the “Made in Connecticut” category. Based in Mystic, Mystic Knotwork stands as a testament to the family’s grandfather, Alton Beaudoin, and strives to keep the New England decorative knot-tying tradition alive. Its workshop is open to the public in downtown Mystic overlooking the drawbridge and riverfront. Just down the street is an accessible retail location to better serve the community and guests.

“From my earliest memory, I’ve thought of Yankee Magazine as the stamp of approval for New England,” said Matt Beaudoin, owner of Mystic Knotwork. “My grandfather first received attention in the magazine in 1964. Today, 55 years later, we are excited Yankee is honoring the next generation.”

Based in Dublin, New Hampshire, Yankee: New England’s Magazine was founded in 1935 and is the iconic American magazine covering the finest that New England has to offer. Covering classic New England travel destinations, food traditions, and home and lifestyle stories with stunning photography and artwork, Yankee has featured many notable American writers in its pages such as Robert Frost, John Updike, and Stephen King.
