Escape to the Ocean State’s shore and stay at the Weekapaug Inn, an 1899 property that reopens Oct. 7 after a $20 million transformation. The Cape Cod-style building overlooks Quonochontaug Pond and the Atlantic Ocean. It has 27 new guest rooms and four suites, all with heated bathroom floors. Relax in front of a wood-burning fireplace in a public lounge, swim in the 75-foot lap pool, or meet with a naturalist for bird-watching and constellation viewing.

Just in time for winter, JetBlue will launch a new direct service from Boston to the Cayman Islands. Beginning Nov. 17, a flight departs Boston every Saturday at 10:25 a.m. and arrives in Grand Cayman at 2:35 p.m. The return flight leaves Grand Cayman at 3:30 p.m. on Saturdays, so you can squeeze in a morning swim or excursion, and arrives in Boston at 7:25 p.m. Passengers will travel by Airbus A320 and receive complimentary snacks and drinks, one free checked bag, and lots of legroom in coach class. Tick-ets from $409.

The National Peace Corps Association has launched a global service program called Next Step Travel that gives people a chance to work on small grass-roots projects and learn about nongovernment organizations worldwide for two weeks at a time. The new program lets people get a sense of Peace Corps work without a two-year commitment. The trips are geared to returned Peace Corps volunteers and anyone who wants to help other people, is curious about the world, and has a sense of adventure. The organization’s first trips launch in October, when groups of up to 20 people travel to the Dominican Republic and Guatemala.  202-293-7728,  



The Origami, made by 4moms, is the Lamborghini of strollers, complete with swoopy lines and high-tech features that draw curious glances and double takes. The tricked-out baby stroller has daytime running lights, pathway lights that automatically turn on in low-light situations, and an LCD screen on the handlebars that tells the temperature, your speed, and your trip and lifetime mileage. The stroller opens and closes with the push of a (lockable) button so you can handle setup and breakdown with one hand, and it charges itself while you are walking using generators in its rear wheels. The Origami comes with two cup holders on the handlebars and a storage pouch near the “undercarriage.” The Origami tips the scales at 29 pounds, and will lighten your wallet: It sells for $829 at  888-614-6667,  



Your gadgets can take a beating when you travel. Dynaflo’s Liquid-Armor invisible spray coats the screen of your cellphone, tablet, portable game, and laptop, or even a camera lens to create an anti-scratch protective surface that is supposedly twice as strong as traditional peel-and-stick protectors. The liquid screen protector comes in a 3-ounce bottle with two microfiber cloths or in a kit with single-use wipes. Just apply the product, and the device will ready to use in about 10 minutes and fully dry after a day. I tried it on an old iPod Touch: The protective seal held up well, showing no dings or scratches after multiple drops and spills in the hands of a toddler. It also created a noticeably anti-static, water-repellent surface. Liquid-Armor sells for $19.99 through Dynaflo.  909-598-2222,
