Where: Newport’s Bowen’s Wharf
Why: In the panic of what to get the person who has everything this holiday season, you’d be hard pressed to find an unenthusiastic recipient of a beautifully wrapped, heavenly scented, thoughtful box of rich, handcrafted chocolates. Destination Chocolate on Bowen’s Wharf from the outside is reminiscent of a Parisian storefront with a bistro table for two outside and elegantly displayed confections in the window. Inside, the charming chocolatier emits a sugary scent of sweet delight. From truffles to turtles, creams to caramels, nuts to nonpareils, there’s something for just about everyone in this enchanting shop.
