Fave Five Summer Road Trip Destinations
Planning to hit the road this summer with your family and don't know where to go? Check out my favorite summer road trip destinations in the Northeast and enjoy the ride!
1. Block Island, RI - We have been going back to this cozy, family friendly island for the last five years and I have to say, every summer, we find something something new - whether it's a Blueberry Mojito at the Spring House, one of a kind hand crafted jewelry, mouthwatering cupcakes and quaint picture frames at the farmers market, or just great conversation at an outdoor restaurant with a view of the ocean. Our friends, who are Block Island veterans, know every nook and cranny of the island and have introduced us to all their favorites including the sunsets at the Spring House, Mansion Beach, lunch at the Oar, hiking trails, bonfires and much more. For an ultimate vacation, invite your favorite friends and make it one that you will never forget.
2. Nantucket, MA - There is nothing that quite compares to Nantucket. From the decadent restaurants (Le Chanticleer), the great brunch spots (Black Eyed Susie's), bike trails, beaches, sailing cruises, mopeds and shops, this is by far one of my favorite New England destinations. Best resort on the island for families and couples: The White Elephant --- a breathtakingly beautiful hotel that's situated near the village center. If you have time for a weekend getaway without the kids, I highly recommend visiting Nantucket on your own too - my husband and I spent our first anniversary there and still remember it as if it were yesterday.
