We asked longtime friend of the blog Jenny DiMucci to talk about a few of her Rhody Summer favs. Scroll on for more about her picks, including 4 hidden treasures (that you've probably never heard of) from one particular, picturesque town.
I am a mom of two young boys, co-owner of Twinkle & SMOOCH beauty & One Studio Smooch, and Makeup Artist & Brand Ambassador. Summer is the best time of year for us. We love anything outdoors, and near or on the water. Being on a sailboat on the Rhode Island coast now equals pure bliss and relaxation for this busy family.
Starting out with the town of Bristol for their Summer Concert Series...We love to take a blanket and watch the many concerts. **Next one is scheduled for Wed., July 19th at 6pm at Blithewold.**
While in Bristol, we like to have dinner at Quito's, a tiny little place, known for its delicious seafood, and sometimes we'll sit and have a cocktail at Thames Waterside and watch the sailboats, always topping it all off with ice cream from Gray's. There are lots of cute shops to pop in to or meander about while eating your ice cream.
When we are able, our most favorite quick getaway is a night's stay at the Point Pleasant Inn (Photo above.), which feels like your own private Italian villa with gorgeous views, unbelievable service, and quaint, quiet rooms.
Of course, we love the beach. Sand Hill Cove is the boys' favorite. Also, Narragansett Town Beach and Charlestown. We like to drive around and hit some little beachy type hot spots for a quick dinner or explore new beaches and places.
Beauty, Art & Music
At One Studio Smooch, we (my husband Michael and I) host a variety of classes and events, including everything from Children's Art Classes, Summer Camp Sessions, and Birthday Parties to Adult Art Classes and Adult Pop Up Art & Wine Nights. **Click here to follow the Studio on Facebook and get the latest happenings and updates.**
