What to do in the winter in the winter!

Hi everyone. My boyfriend and I will be traveling to Stamford, CT at the end of January, 2015 and were wondering do you have any suggestions on what to do for fun? We don't just want to be stuck in the hotel for the 3 days we are there, ya know? We are pretty much up for anything as long as it doesn't require us to be exposed to the elements for too long. He and I both know how cold it can get because he is from Massachusetts and I'm from Pennsylvania. Please any and all suggested ideas are welcomed even if not exactly in the Stamford area, we don't mind driving a little ways (well within reason). Thank you for your time.

There are a couple of web sites of local events that might help you, depending on what you are interested in doing:

What about taking the train into New York? It only takes an hour, and there are at least a thousand things to do for fun in New York.

I'd agree with taking the train. Metro North runs pretty frequent trains to Grand Central NYC and fares are very reasonable (no nee to book online):

Going the other way, you could take the same train to New Haven and spend the day exploring its small, historical downtown area, its excellent museums and some of the Yale buildings;

If you fancy a drive and the weather is fairly decent, Mystic and its historical seaport is only around 1.5 hours from Stamford and well worth visiting:

Agree with taking the train into NYC.
Loads of things to do inside and out. Much more fun to be outside.
