Beavertail State Park in Jamestown RI 02835 - It's all about the View here on the island of Jamestown RI in Narragansett Bay. Known as Conanicut Island after the Indians that lived on the island. Jamestown is connected to the mainland by both the Newport and Jamestown bridges and it wasn't that long ago (1969) that you had to take a ferry to get to Newport. Yes, it's worth a road trip when you come to RI. It's the majestic southerly point of this island which makes Beavertail so spectacular- the ocean crashing on the many rocks, the lighthouse beacon still sending its light out to vessels entering the Bay and the pristine landscape of this state park for all to come and enjoy it...free.

Whether it's the walking trails, the Beavertail rocks, historic lighthouse or just sightseeing from this point of interest, you'll want to come. The afternoon I stopped by people were set up in the parking lots, on the rocks and on the grass with their lawn chairs. It's just breathtaking to breathe the air and view the ocean from this point on the island. It's not like any vantage point in Rhode Island.
So travel on down to the center of this little island's town, Jamestown, with incredible houses to look at (or buy), wonderful marinas and enjoyable restaurants after you've enjoyed the scenic views of anytime of day at Beavertail. But if you ask me, there's no better time to be there then sunrise or sunset...just find time to do it. Beavertail State Park in Jamestown RI 02835 - It's all about the View.
