Yeah, I agree, I was pretty much just thinking of Route 2 where one'd be closest to the roads going to the beaches, etc. - and it was also why I gave the reference to Garden City in Nassau County just to give her an idea.

But you're right, it is more sprawl than anything.

I think south of East Greenwich in one of the "charming towns" sounds about right. If I wanted to do a day trip to Watch Hill, that would be possible too.

Exactly! These aren't exactly vacation destinations. I'd rather pay a little more for the lodging and be right where I wanted to be(Narragansett/Charleston/Watch Hill/ Westerly) rather than After all it is just for 4 days and you are on "vacation". Why not treat yourself to a whole vacation package including staying in the vacation area and not having to commute back and forth to it?
