I have been going to Misquamicut Beach since I was young and I still love it today 40 years later. The water is so clean and there is always waves. The facilities are clean. Within walking distance to the main state beach, there are several bars and restaurants, water slides, a kiddie amusement park complete with carousel, hotels, jet ski rentals, banana boat rides and gift shops. The Westerly Town Beach which is right next door has free concerts on the beach ranging from reggae to classis rock to smooth jazz. It is just a great time.
