There really is a fort at Ft Wetherill, which guarded Narragansett Bay during WWI and WWII. Since then it has been abandoned to vandals, so the fort itself is not really the attraction. It's the breathtaking views from the trails above the fort. Lots of benches, all donated in the memory of loved ones, line the trails. If you have children keep them well in hand: it runs along the top of a cliff high above jagged rocks and crashing surf. Spectacular views of the Newport coastline from here.
