September Season in Full Swing

Summer has slipped past and if I don't hurry September will be gone before I get this posted. Although the beach bums have mostly gone home there are still many Fall visitors visiting Narragansett, RI.

All the usual things happen here after Labor Day. Wedding festivities bring visitors nearly every weekend. URI students and activities draw family and friends into the area. The absolutely gorgeous weather has been fabulous for bikers, hikers, surfers, and swimmers. Day trips to Block Island are more relaxed with less traffic on their roads. The local dining scene offers all the great food with shorter waiting times. Newport and the casinos are just a short drive away.

If you are interested in more off beat activities the Narragansett Pier is a great home base. Lighthouse Cruises, bird watching walks with the Audubon Society, tours of an alpaca farm, apple picking, Corn Maize adventures and frightening Halloween displays are all a short distance away.

So book early and book often for your much deserved break from routine. Our Fall season rates make Blueberry Cove Inn an affordable option every day of the week. But hurry! weekends are booking up quickly.
