Less than five miles long, the tiny seaside town of Watch Hill is an
oasis of undulating hills scented with honeysuckle and roses, sandy
beaches and the sea, making it feel almost like a mythical place.
Indeed, children leap on the historic Flying Horse Carousel, with
its calliope music, and catch the golden ring. The village is almost
too charming, too precious for words. Walking into this haven is an
exercise in letting go of all worries while embracing all of its gifts. So
tiny is Watch Hill that there are only about a hundred and seventy
residents, though in the summer months the numbers swell with
returning second homeowners and visitors. Southbound, the village is
a two-hour drive from Boston, and heading north, a three-hour drive
from New York City.
