What NOT to miss?

Hubby and I (40's) coming in the end of the month. What should we definately NOT miss doing other than the Seaport Museum and Aquarium? We are laid back, look at the ocean, walk the town type of people. Any little hidden areas/gems that people may overlook? Thanks so much!

Take a walk through Stonington Borough. It was originally a fishing village, but now has a bit of everything. Gorgeous old houses, art galleries, restaurants, working fishing boats.

A trip to Old Saybrook may be nice. They have boat rides in the summer that leave from Saybrook Point. It is really pretty.

Another recommendation, since you say you like to walk the town, is go up to Watch Hill in Rhode Island - about a 15 min or so drive - Cute little town with shops, an antique carousel complete with a brass ring, and a beautiful beach.
