All About Narragansett
The small seaside community of Narragansett, on the chilly Atlantic waters of Rhode Island’s southern coast, has attracted summer-bound beachgoers for generations. Drawn by impeccable weather and sprawling beaches rife with recreational opportunities, visitors congregate on the soft sandy beaches for surfing and sunbathing. The historic downtown areas with streetside cafes, cobblestoned streets, and iconic New England-style architecture offer opportunities to enjoy regional seafood like lobster, steamed clams, and boiled crawfish.
If you’re looking to do some hiking and wildlife spotting outside of town, Burlingame State Park, Big River Management Area, and Block Island National Wildlife Refuge are easily accessible from Narragansett.
The best time to stay in a vacation rental in Narragansett
Rhode Island’s northeastern coastal climate sees wide swings in seasonal conditions throughout the year. The summers are short but pleasant, with warm temperatures and minimal rainfall, making for excellent weather for enjoying the area’s beaches. June through September are the busiest season for vacation rentals in Narragansett. Spring and fall might be the best times to visit, as daytime temperatures remain warm but the beach is less crowded. Bear in mind that it will get chilly at night, especially close to the ocean, so come prepared with layers. Winters here tend to be cold, bringing below-freezing temperatures and snow, so bundle up before you head out for the day, or cozy up in your cottage with a cup of tea and watch the wild waves crash on the beach.
Thanks to Rhode Island’s small footprint, Narragansett provides easy access to the rest of the state and its wide array of cultural, outdoor, and festival offerings. In August, the Charlestown Seafood Festival in nearby Charlestown is a three-day event celebrating fresh Atlantic Ocean hauls with food, live music, and a fireworks display.

Point Judith Pond
Point Judith Pond is one of the most easily accessible clamming sites in Rhode Island. It’s located on the edge of town, drawing fans of steamers and quahogs. Several shops in town will rent you the gear you’ll need to go clamming. Just be sure you’re familiar with daily catch limits and grab a temporary fishing license before heading out.
Take the Point Judith Ferry to this small island retreat roughly 12 miles off the coast of Rhode Island. Block Island is known for its dramatic sweeping cliffs, sandy beaches, and a 19th-century lighthouse. The Block Island National Wildlife Refuge, on the northern side of the island, offers opportunities for hiking while you check out the migratory songbirds that call the island home.
