“Watch Hill”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

Just returned from four very relaxing days in Watch Hill, Rhode Island. Very quiet, very peaceful, endless beaches and not too crouded.
They need two more restaurants, and i hope i find them next time I come.

I'll anchor off the coast and just watch this gorgeous lighthouse and classic New England town.

Parking is difficult but the lighthouse is peaceful and there is plenty of grass to use a lawn chair or blanket to rest a while

“Very pretty site; very standard light”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2012

The site is beautiful but as a lighthouse groupie the lighthouse itself isn't in a class with Montauk, Fire Island, Cape Hatteras, Barnegat, sheffield Island, Portland or any number of others near and far - plus, it can't be visited beyond looking at it from outside,, so no great exhibits about the perils of shipping or big Fresnel lenses to check out. However, if you're in Watch Hill it's a definite do, as the walk there is lovely and it's one of the very few attractions in town.

“Charming”

From the carousel you walk just a block and through this lovely neighborhood with grand houses and you come upon the lighthouse, which is incredible.
