A website that bills itself as “the world’s #1 site for vacation rentals” has Mystic at the top of its list of the “15 Prettiest Small Towns in the U.S.”

“This quaint seaside village is dedicated to all things maritime,” the website, Tripping.com, says.

The site lists Mystic’s attributes, including Mystic Seaport, referred to as “the nation’s largest maritime museum”; the Mystic Art Association’s galleries and studios; and Mystic Pizza, “the eatery made famous by the Julia Roberts movie of the same name.”

Tripping.com, based in San Francisco, aggregates millions of listings in more than 150,000 cities worldwide, displaying rental listings from more than a dozen booking websites.

The other top "prettiest small towns" on the list are: Homer, Alaska; Abingdon, Va.; Carmel-by-the-Sea, Calif.; and Stowe, Vt. Other New England locations on the list are Bar Harbor, Maine, at No. 11, and Nantucket, Mass., at No. 13.
