Best things to do in Fairfield County

Aquarium
“If you have any itch at all for an aquarium, this one is well worth the cost--from the big (sharks) to the small (glowing jellyfish), to the in-between (regular seal shows). EVEN BETTER THAN THE AQUARIUM, THOUGH, is the Imax theater adjoined to it. You can see a 45-minute Imax flick without entering the Aquarium. And it's a classic--30 years old with a screen that's four stories tall, and slated to be torn down soon. See it while you can. ”

“If you love the out doors you'll love Silver Sands. You can walk the reef out to Charles Island during low tide but be careful! The current can be strong over the reef. You can get there by car and pay for parking or you can walk or bike there. Just head out the driveway and take a right down Broadway. Keep going straight until you get to Walnut Beach's public access then follow the boardwalk to Silversands. The trip there is about a mile. You'll walk right past the Walnut Beach Creamery and the Lazy Lobster so grab a bite on the way!”

“This seasonal farm stand and dairy farm is THE place to get the best housemade ice cream in creative flavors! There is often a line here on the weekends, but you won't be disappointed by the fresh and innovative choices and the classic, quaint New England charm of the place.”

“We sometimes sell at this Flea Market, which is LARGE! Anything and everything you ever (or never) needed will be here! A bit of a drive but well worth it. If you are a fan of "Flea Market Flip" they shoot here frequently. For $2 it's a nice day out. Food, drinks, etc. are available. (AWESOME chicken fingers!)”

“For design with a dose of springtime sun, head to Grace Farms — a New Canaan community center with 80 acres of outdoor space. The pièce de résistance here is the striking River Building (courtesy of Pritzker Prize-winning Japanese architecture firm SANAA), which winds through the greenery like a snake. The complex, which includes an amphitheater, library, dining room and tea pavilion, also programs poetry readings, films and classes. Also in New Canaan, not far from Grace Farms, are several modernist-design homes by masters Philip Johnson, Marcel Breuer and Eliot Noyes.”

Park
“Hike along a path that leads you to an awesome old tunnel, or choose the trail where you can cross a cool suspense bridge. This is a great place to bring dogs, just remember to keep them on a leash. *Pro tip* It is a 4 mile loop from the front parking area, but you can drive very far into the preserve and park very close to the tunnel/bridge trails. ”
