Making the Most of a Rainy Day

Imagine this: you live in South County, it's summer and it's your day off. It doesn't get much better than that, folks. But you wake up on your free day, beach bags packed and bikini ready, only to find yourself in a torrential downpour. You breifly curse Mother Nature before heading back inside for a day of Law & Order marathons and mindless snacking. 

Well, we are putting a stop to this type of behavior right now. South County is jam packed with awesome places to go and activites to do during these cloudy days; you would be crazy not to take advantage of them. Here are some of our go-to activities that will get you out of the house and change the way you think about rainy days.

Head to the nearest cinema and catch the new romcom everyone's talking about. Seriously, is there anything beter than going to the movies in your comfiest sweats on a cold rainy day? I think not.


Head to a museum. There are so many that you're sure to find one that appeals to your interest. Airplanes? Check. Marine Biology? Check. History? Art? Check, check. The list goes one.

(Newport Ar Museum, Smith's Castle, Gilber Stuart Museum, Fayerweather House, Biomes Marine Biology Center, Quonest Air Museum, Varnum Armory & Varnum House Museum, South County Museum)


Go stargazing. Venture to Charlestown and visit the Frosty Drew Observatory. Their Sky Theater has the clearest views in town.


Go to the beach. Dress the whole family in ponchos and watch the surfers. Even better, join the surfers. As long as it's not storming, a little more water is not going to hurt you. You will find plenty of people in the ocean on rainy days surfing, kayaking, boogie boarding, you name it. The waves are usualy great and the rain makes it extra fun.The best part? A guarenteed parking spot.


At least 21, no kids to watch and have a DD? Check out a new restaurant with an extensive beer or wine list. Lot's of them offer deals during weekday …   More
