Watch Hill A Perfect Summer Destination!

Let me brag a little about my home state of Rhode Island. There is a small village called Watch Hill that is great for a day trip. It is right on the Atlantic Ocean. The pictures below will show you why I love the summer so much! I don't live on the beach but it is just 30 minutes away!
It has beautiful marinas.

I am not a boat person, but I am willing to give it another try.

The Main Street is full of quaint little shops and restaurants.

The beaches are beautiful.

Oh and it has a light house of course.

I mentioned that the Main Street has lots of shops. Some of the shops have affordable little trinkets and treasures. You know the Watch Hill sweatshirts for reasonable prices. But there are other shops that have high end clothing and accessories.
Watch Hill has many beautiful private homes!

Imagine that this could be a summer residence?

There are a few inns if you decide to extend your day trip into a long weekend. There is enough to do in the Westerly area. Mystic Seaport and two large casinos are right down the road, they belong to the state of Connecticut.

I would love to be sitting here right now. I know that it would not be as peaceful a scene as this picture. So, I will wait to go during the week when it tends to be quite, more like this image.

If you are ever in New England you have to have a lobster roll! I am sorry to show you this if you haven't had lunch or dinner just yet! I would love to have one right now. The day is still young, maybe supper!

Watch Hill is a great place to spend the day, I know I have been doing it for years.

Thanks for visiting!

I have always wanted to visit your part of the country. I would love to be there during Autumn and seeing the Fall leaves. Thanks for giving a virtual tour.
