Narragansett, R.I., not just a summer attraction
By AAA member Rosemary Rucker

Although it’s a tourist destination in the summer, there is plenty to see and do year-round in Narragansett, R.I. From The Towers on Ocean Road to the Point Judith Lighthouse, there is much to appreciate. There are many Ocean Road estates with beautiful and elaborate architecture from a bygone era.

Point Judith Lighthouse: A working lighthouse with sweeping views of both the open ocean and Narragansett Bay, it is a must stop when in the area. The station was first established in 1810, and the present lighthouse was built in 1857.

Hazard and Newton avenues: Just off Ocean Road, you can get close to crashing waves on huge rocks here.

Walk the beach: From Galilee to Roger Wheeler Beach or from the Town Beach to The Dunes Club. Free access and dogs are allowed from September to May. Look for beach glass and driftwood after a storm.

George’s of Galilee: Watch the boats and ferry go by while enjoying great and varied seafood. George’s has been a staple in Narragansett since 1948.

Kingston Pizza: With 10 locations, owner Sam Sciabarrasi has made it easy to enjoy calzones, pizzas and meals all over southern Rhode Island. Narragansett has two spots, making it convenient to get to from many areas of the town.

Spain Restaurant: Featuring great food and atmosphere, it’s no wonder Spain has received awards for several years running.
