Wow! Misquamicut and Watch Hill a few miles away, Narragansett Beach (20 minutes) Block Island Ferry (20 minutes), Newport (30 minutes), Casinos (30-35 minutes), golf courses (everywhere). Providence with it's famous zoo is a short drive (30-35 minutes) as well as the Mall shopping in Warwick.
You can easily spend a day antiquing if that is your thing with the nearby flea market on Sundays. An overcast day you can drive to a number of nearby wineries and taste some of the best wines.
Bring a camera because there are many local roads that are declared 'scenic' and offer many opportunities for great photographs.
Restaurants and more: South County has the best restaurants that will please everyone! I love casual dining, nearby restaurants have Rhode Island Clam Chowder and Clam Fritter's. Family dining at Aunt Carries rules! For a more sophisticated dinner the Shelter Harbor Inn is lovely. For the big splash, the 'Ocean House' in Watch Hill is the best,sitting on the veranda on a lazy Sunday afternoon cannot be equaled!!
The cottage has a good selection of summer reading. What is summer without romance, mystery and a little bit of drama! There are cards, board games, as well as some dvd's after a long day at the beach.
I have had the benefit of vacationing at East Beach since I was four years old (a long time ago). I spent my summer life clamming, blueberry picking, walking barefoot and rolling in the waves. I'm addicted to the salt air and the changing color of the ocean.
My cottage is close to everything and yet it is in a very quiet and respectful community. It is central to the best areas of Rhode Island and Southeastern, CT.
The cottage can fill three separate and distinct types of vacationers. For the beach people there are six miles of beach accessible from our parking lot. For the athletic there are golf courses, tennis courts, bicycling, and more in the area, as well as all the water sports. For the daytrippers you can go to Block Island, Newport, Mystic, Watch Hill, Misquamicut and all the Casinos in less than one hour, many in a half hour or less. On a rainy day there are many movie theaters, and tourist attractions.
