I'm thinking about going to Rhode Island the first week of Sept. I have never been there. I love the beach and I'm not sure if I should stay at a b&b in Narragansett(walking distance to beach) or in Newport at a b&b. Is Newport within walking distance to a beach? I have looked at the map and it doesn't look like it, but some b&bs say they are. How is the beach water the first week of September. Is it cold? Any suggestions or tips are really appreciated.
