What to eat.
To fill the fridge back at home we recommend Belmont Market or Roch’s.
There’s also a fantastic farmer’s market at Casey Farm on Saturday’s from 8:30 AM - 12:30 PM.
After the beach.
After dinners, take a quick 10 minute drive to visit the town’s best ice cream parlor, Brickley’s. Be prepared to wait in line, especially on a hot summer night -- and make it there before they close at 10 PM!
If you’re up for one of the best restaurants in the world, take a drive to Providence and go to Al Forno. We recommend the baked bruschetta, the baked pasta, and the dirty steak -- sometimes not on the menu, but available upon request! Be sure to make a reservation in advance and make note, they’re only open Tuesday through Saturday.
For the best seaside views, visit the Castle Hill Inn. Stop by in the early evening for a drink on the lawn out front.
On a beautiful summer night, dine outside on the porch at the Ocean House on Watch Hill.
Also, Theatre by the Sea has well-done, kid friendly musicals in the evenings.
Visit the nearby Wickford Village to peruse antiques at Beauty & the Bath, Wickford Antique Estate Liquidators, and Wickford Village Antiques & Collectibles. For a bite to eat, stop in at Shayna’s Place. They have fresh juices, smoothies, sandwiches and salads -- and they deliver! There’s also Five Main, a nice little art gallery to check out in the middle of town.
Shopping and other errands.
Visit the Fantastic Umbrella Factory, a kind of bazaar full of international knick-knacks and items made by local artisans nestled on a historic 19th century farm.
Stop in at Green Line Apothecary to visit the vintage-inspired soda fountain and fulfill any pharmaceutical needs.
Go to Wakefield Books to pick up a good book for the beach.
