I have been living (not including those four years of college I insisted I would never stay here) in Rhode Island for just about two years now. T and I rent the tiniest cottage that we like to say is old enough that George Washington could have been born in it. What it lacks for in doors, even flooring, and air conditioning, it makes up for in charm and location. We also have a 1/2 address which makes me happy every time I say it.
My town is a quintessential New England seaside town. There is a darling Main Street, quirky coffee shops, historic buildings, and converted mills. Our docks are always bursting with boats in the summer and our bellies full with the catch of the day.
I have laid out the must do's and must eats for you if you are ever in the area. I highly suggest stopping by (and letting me know if you do!!).
I do have a few other favorites that I would love to share so if you decide to head to the area, shoot me an email! I would be happy to help.
