In this charming coastal community, fitness activities are as close as the Long Island Sound. Sailors, kayakers and swimmers head to the beach for a workout. Nature walkers go inland to the Stamford Museum & Nature Center, where they might spot a red fox or white-tail deer on trails winding through more than 80 acres. On Friday nights, stargazers can look deep into space through the center's 22-inch research telescope.
