These Local Spots Will Have You Planning A Holiday Daycation With Your BFF's

We’re here once again.

The countdown to Thanksgiving, and next thing you know, it’ll be CE. We all have that one friend who finished their Christmas shopping back in August, and is probably using their calligraphy skills to make place cards for their Thursday table as we speak. (Try not to be too jelly.)

One way for the rest of us to stay relatively sane and pleasant these last two months of the year is to take an hour or three out on the reg to do something low key fun, whether it’s on your own or with that non-judge-y friend or friends you can really vent to (aka, that person or ppl you probably always tag in the comment section of IG posts from My Therapist Says or Betches).

Main Street In EG

One destination to keep on your radar for this type of necessary leisure time off or recreation would have to be Main Street EG. The other night we were there for an art show and were reminded of just how adorbs and charming it is. So, there's no shame in kicking off your fall/winter 2018 Down Time Tour with some window shopping, coffee or cocktails at a few of our personal favs on Main:

  1. A coffee in the am or a seasonal cocktail in the pm at Main Street Coffee is an absolute must do. Sit back and indulge in some people watching or catch up with your crew at this East Greenwich hot spot. There’s also a fireplace in the back room for boosting the cozy vibe.

  2. Check out the front window at The White Elephant (not to be confused with the resort in Nantucket). Their curated selection of refurbished treasures is always a treat that helps keep us upbeat and cheery.

  3. Then there’s the The Troll Shop. Their windows are usually decked with all kinds of unexpected and unusual items. A great conversation starter to be sure. (Side bar: we’re pretty curious about this place.)

  4. A must visit for every pet pawrent is Bone Appetit, the eco-friendly dog store. Treats, cold weather gear, and even more bark-tastic stuff for the good boy in your life.

  5. Make time to visit Sprigs which features an impressively merchandised selection of all kinds of plants (ideal for that person in your life who’s fully embraced the Houseplant Trend this year) and gifty items, including ornaments, lights, and . You'll be a fan. PS - They also have a shop in Wickford.
