Hello! I'm in the VERY early phases of planning a trip next summer. We will be in Baltimore for a wedding on June 2, will have a rental car, and would like to find a rental on (or near) the beaches of RI where family/friends that live in surrounding areas can come and visit. We'd like a nice beach house/condo but typically cook when family gets together so don't need tons of shops/restaurants. Newport and the cliff walk sounds quite nice, but looks a bit pricier than we were hoping. We'll most likely fly out of Providence so if anyone has any suggestions for beach towns between NYC and Providence, I'd love to hear them.
And just to give some price perspective...I've briefly reviewed VRBO properties in Newport and Block Island, that were $2500 ish per week for a 2-3 bedroom and not necessarily ON the beach...which is a bit more than I'd like to spend. Thanks in advance for any ideas!
