Perfect Wave

Waiting for the perfect wave
Misquamicut Beach
Rhode Island
They'll be waiting a long time for the "perfect wave" on the east coast, but it's all relative. When you're four feet tall, a three foot wave is just about perfect. Misquamicut Beach is just across the Connecticut border into Rhode Island. A short drive from the central Mystic tourist center, this popular family beach has a wide and extremely long beach with lighthouses on either end. It's just beyond the tip of Long Island, so the waves are decent, even better on stormy days.
There is a long boardwalk near the concessions and a very environmentally friendly (and odorous) restroom facility. The concessions lines are tortuously long, so byo-food. The kids loved the playground and outdoor cold showers. Coin-op showers are also available.
