Day Tripping | Newport, RI
Sometimes, summer days call for an impromptu family road trip. And if you're lucky enough to have a mini traveler that enjoys car rides, those road trips can take you to some pretty spectacular places. This past Sunday my husband loaded up the car and surprised us with the most beautiful family day in Newport, RI. Having spent our honeymoon here a few years back, this New England haven will always have a place in my heart.
This particular day we spent perusing Bowen's Wharf- doing a little shopping and stopping at our favorite establishments for the freshest seafood bites around. The weather was perfect; the company perfection, the view pristine, and the food superb. It was the perfect quick getaway- and now that I know our MM is up for the trek, I look forward to more family fun days on the wharf- if even for just an afternoon.
The Clarke Cookhouse Candy Store and Bistro | one of my husband's favorites. Sit and people watch street side or from the open-air second floor the bar.
22 Bowen's Wine Bar and Grille | Oysters + jumbo shrimp on ice from one of my favorite. Paired with a local brew, and I'm one happy camper.
The Black Pearl | If you like bloodies + clam chowder, this is your place.
