Why we love it:It's not the Ocean State for nothing: More than 400 miles of coastline and 100 public beaches can be found here, and everyone has a favorite. Ours is Watch Hill, for its mix of historic architecture, charming inns and excellent dining fronting the ocean.
TripAdvisor rating: 82% good/excellent
Sample review: "The entire Watch Hill area is exactly what you think of when you think New England coastline." — AshleeProc
