If you live in New England and have time for a day trip this summer, I definitely recommend Newport, Rhode Island. It's about an hour and a half from Boston and this weekend, it was about 10 degrees cooler and breezy. There are tons of things to do: restaurants, shops, tours and beaches. Here's what I suggest to any future visitors:
The Landing/The Lobster Bar: great lobster rolls and drinks, right on the water
The Cookie Jar: cookies, pastries, coffee and breakfast sandwiches, it smells so good in there!
Cliff Walk: amazing views and a nice breezy walk, you can also see The Breakers mansion without paying for the tour :)
Pink Pineapple shop: tons of trendy statement jewelry and cute clothes
There's so much to do we couldn't possibly get to it all in one day so next time I'll post more suggestions. Please also share anything I should check out when I go there again!
