This Rhode Island getaway is off the beaten track but only a short drive to Rhode Island's south facing beaches (IMHO some of the most beautiful beaches in New England).
Within walking distance to Carolina Management area and hiking trails with a canoe and kayak launch onto the Wood River just down the street. A short drive or bike ride will take you to other hiking trails, fishing spots and swimming holes.
Make sure to stay over on a Friday night to watch the stars when Frosty Drew Observatory is open for public viewing. It's one of Rhode Island's secret gems.
