Things to Do

With its position on the coast, Narragansett has an untouched feel with miles of open beaches, green spaces, and the ocean itself. Top activities that locals value in keeping an active lifestyle are fishing, sailing, hiking, kayaking, surfing, and spending time at the beach. The pristine Narragansett Town Beach, Roger W. Wheeler State Beach, Scarborough State Beach, and Salty Brine State Beach are the prettiest beaches. Avid hikers will enjoy exploring Black Point Trail and Whale Rock Trail, both with spectacular views of the ocean. On the southern point of Rhode Island’s coastline is Point Judith. It is a small village on the coast home to the ferry that transports people over the Rhode Island Sound to the idyllic Block Island. There are many great places to eat, shops, the Point Judith Country Club, and a lighthouse.
 
A two-day festival that includes a 10-mile road race, a parade of boats, music, food, and fun for the entire community is the Blessing of the Fleet held each summer. On Bay Day, the town celebrates all the natural charm the coast of Narragansett has to offer by inspiring residents to get outside and participate in one of many activities. And, in turn, finding a greater appreciation for the landscape and environment of their beloved town.
