Rhode Island Coast

Hello: Plan to take a road trip from Long Island, NY up to Cape Cod, MA and possibly Boston. Thinking of touring the coast of Rhode Island along the way. Besides Newport (been there, same for Mystic,CT) was wondering where to stop for the day or possibly a overnight. I will be traveling with my wife and tween daughter. Thanks and have a great summer!

You might poke into Stonington Borough, near Mystic. It has well-preserved 18th and 19th century buildings. Good for an hour or two.

Watch Hill (part of Westerly, RI) is a super-aflluent town with mansions, pricey shops and an ornate hotel, the Ocean House. Is your tween daughter a Taylor Swift fan? She has a house there and is often around during the summer.

Other places in RI you might consider, Wickford and Jamestown.

How about an overnight on Block Island?

>>>Block Island<<<

Nice idea. You can also take a ferry from Orient Point to New London, CT, which might be helpful, depending on where you're beginning your drive.
