my hub and I would like to spend about 4 days in a beachfront hotel or inn this Sept. we have never been to R.I. so don't have any idea on which beach or area. we don't care about swimming or getting a tan--- but want a great sandy beach to walk on, maybe sit & read a book. would also like somewhere that we can easily walk into town for dinner & shopping. We did this last year in Cannon Beach Oregon ( Surf Sand Inn) and it was perfect ! Long walks every morning & our Inn did bonfires everyn night. would like to find something similar in Rhode Island.
