Take a step back into Rhode Island’s surfing past at the 1960s-inspired Break Hotel (from $199). The year-old 16-room boutique property is nestled right in the middle of a beachside Narragansett neighborhood — an area where legendary surfers such as Peter Pan plied (and continue to ply) their trade. Vintage photos of surfers adorn the hotel’s colorful, vibrant interior, and rooms are spacious: The Sunset King includes a fireplace, 50-inch Apple TV, lounge area, and balcony overlooking summer homes and ocean swells. Be sure to have a cocktail at the rooftop bar, then grab some grub at the Break’s Chair 5 restaurant before exploring the dive bars and ice-cream parlors at night.
