We are a family of 5 visiting Rhode Island in August for 4 days. We will be staying in a hotel either in Newport or West Greenwich (as cheaper). We are interested in going to an uncrowded beach (if they exist) probably later in the day. We are also interested in a boat ride along the coast, a Newport mansion that the kids will enjoy, and probably a trip to Block Island. Would the Cliff Walk be tiring or enjoyable for young kids? Suggestions for fun restaurants with a view would be great. Rainy day activities?
Not really interested in Providence area. We will probably spend a separate day in Mystic on the way home. 3 Kids under 12. And yes, we would like to do all this on a budget!
Thank you very much in advance for your time.
