You could have visited Mystic Aquarium & Institute for Exploration (home of Bob Ballard --who rediscovered the Titanic) while you were in Mystic, leaving you with only 963 more places to see before D-Day!

If you get to Niagara Falls, do go to Niagara-on-the-Lake and visit the beautiful village and artisans there. There must be somewhere else in Canada that could be added to your list? You could visit me! samm
