Thanks to everyone who took the time to answer all our posts. We did alot of "research" before our trip & it all paid off. We had a really great week with lots of fun & awesome weather!!
July 2nd - Arrived at Burlingame Campground around 4pm & set up our waterfront site really, really quickly because we wanted to catch Waterfire in Providence. We figured if we were lucky enough to be there during a "fire" we should go see it & we were right!! It was sooo beautiful & is definitely a "must-do" when in RI. We ate at Luxe Burger Bar which we loved. It had outdoor seating, fair prices, good food & was literally 100 ft from the beginning of Waterfire. It was a perfect first night :)
July 3rd - Slept in a bit, finished setting up camp, then headed to mass at Immaculate Conception in Westerly. We assumed there'd be a 12pm service since all the churches in Long Island have them but we were wrong. Mass is at 11am - hopefully we still get points for trying ;)
Did some food shopping - then sat by the swimming pond all day long!! Ended the day with a campfire & toasted marshmallows. Nothing better!!
July 4th - Spent the morning swimming in the pond. The kids loved that you could walk 200 feet and still touch. We headed over to Watch Hill in the afternoon & bought heros to take to Misquamicut Beach (the free section). The surf wasn't rough at all & the kids stayed in for 2 hours! We missed Napatree Point so that's on our "to do" list for next time. After some ice cream at St Clairs Annex - we headed over to Wuskenau Town Beach where they were having fireworks later in the night. We spent a couple hours sitting on the Adirondack chairs at Windjammer overlooking the beach. This place is not fancy by any means, but the burgers, fries & beers were good & the view was amazing! The fireworks was short & sweet - I guess we're used to much bigger displays here in New York. It took us an hour to get home but it was worth it for the day we had.
Will post some more tomorrow...............
