A stay or getaway at a waterfront or beachfront lodging -- be it a resort, hotel, motel, or inn -- offers a delightful and restful vacation in beautiful surroundings. Come and jump in at Narragansett or Newport, Rhode Island; the rocky coast of Maine; Cape Cod in Massachusetts; or along Long Island Sound in Connecticut. The water’s fine!
