The ideal summer weekend destination requires a few things: a beach, fantastic food choices, and the option to explore, whether on foot or via bike. Less crowded than the Hamptons, and easier to reach than Nantucket, Watch Hill is the serene summer destination that checks every box. Located on the southernmost tip of the state, the tiny coastal getaway is part of the larger town of Westerly and is known for its massive and restored historic homes and notable residents. (This is where Taylor Swift had her infamous Fourth of July extended photoshoot of a weekend.) It’s a small place, so hard to miss the major attractions, but here’s a guide to planning an idyllic stay.
