SHOP: Summertime goods from 5 Watch Hill spots

From art to swimwear, make a day on Bay Street


Craving a one-day vacation? Head over to Bay Street in Watch Hill. Along this coastal stretch, experience a charm that mirrors Cape Cod’s Chatham, a flying horse carousel that beats the one in Oak Bluffs (these horses are suspended and swing out!), and on a clear day, views of Montauk and Block Island. They say that most Rhode Islanders haven’t been to Block Island, and the same might hold true for this idyllic spot at the most southwestern point of the state on a peninsula. The shopping district is dense and pretty and like any seaside town worth its salt, has a candy shop with a striped awning. Make a full day of exploring a range of retail shops and wonderful waterfront dining. Here is a mere sampling of wares worth parking for.
