Watch Hill, RI:

The 1856 Lighthouse shapes the skyline; inviting streets are lined with boutiques and galleries, antique shops and restaurants. The famed Flying Horse Carousel is the oldest continuously operating carousel in the country; the hand-carved horses have leather saddles and vibrant eyes, and riders reach for a brass ring in hopes of winning another ride. Ocean air and sunlight billow through scenic parks, and fleets of sailboats nod in the bay. Walking from the Ocean House into Watch Hill for homemade ice cream is a rite of passage for the young and the young at heart. Things to see and do in Watch Hill:
