Because Life Is Better On A Boat

If you’re looking to keep it reel this Spring and Summer - and check a key thing off your wish list - you’ll be ecstatic to know that you can now book a local stay on a lovely houseboat.

Yup, by way of the amazing peeps at Airbnb and Sleep Aboard (a RI-based houseboat rental compay), you can whisk your S.O. off for a two (or more) night escape on an utterly charming hb on the water in Providence or East Greenwich.

There’s Wifi, but why not turn your staycation into a digital detox and enjoy the houseboat life? Maybe just keep your phone handy, so that you can stream Spotify and have a nauti soundtrack for your holiday. Include some old school classics from The Beach Boys and maybe throw in that Blondie track (The Tide Is High) from the 80’s as well.

Other things to consider: Your feet. Because you’re going to be barefoot whilst on the boat. The perfect excuse to book a couples pedicure prior to. Also, your wardrobe.
