Beaches? Some of the most beautiful ones on the East Coast are in Little Rhody-- and only 30-40 minutes away! There are several beaches in the area (I recommend Narragansett Pier Beach) and a (still operational) lighthouse, Point Judith Light. Narragansett was voted New England’s best beach town by Boston Globe readers in 2018. True, but did they have to let the secret out... While you're there, check out The Towers, designed by preeminent architects McKim, Mead and White back when Narragansett, and not Newport, was the summer resort preferred by elite vacationers.

Simply magical! On summer nights, the rivers of downtown Providence come alive with 80 crackling bonfires, the heart of the WaterFire experience. Created by RISD grad Barnaby Evans, Waterfire has been called the “crown jewel of the Providence renaissance." It's popular, so walk downtown (less than a mile) to avoid traffic. You can google WaterFire's schedule and even take a Venetian gondola ride on the river.
