  1. Hitch a ride to Blue Hill at Stone Barns, just three miles away! If you’re in the mood for a romantic dinner, it’s pricey but the best dining experience you’ll have on this side of the Atlantic Ocean. Another great option is to cruise over before 4pm and eat at the cafe. The food is mouthwateringly delicious, and most of it is grown right there at the barn! I almost forgot to mention the beautiful walking paths, charming farm animals, and stunning lake in the back. Enjoy…
