BEST PLACE TO PEOPLE WATCH

WaterFire

Eighteen years after its debut, this Rhode Island summer staple still manages to move. Eighty bonfires on the river, the smell of burning wood, music in the air — and, of course, the people. Whether you like to gawk at the skate punks, gaze in wonder on that elderly couple still together after so many years, or listen to the goofy chatter of little kids, this is the place to be.
