Where to Stay in Watch Hill, Rhode Island:

Ocean House
This Victorian grande dame may have undergone a five-year, $140 million facelift, but it hasn’t forgotten its roots. You’ll find afternoon tea on the porch and Friday night clambakes on the beach.


Where to Eat in Watch Hill, Rhode Island:

Seasons at Ocean House
Ocean views, an historic stone fireplace and open exhibition kitchen provide a memorable and unique dining experience.

Great Attraction in Watch Hill, Rhode Island:

Napatree Point
For beach lovers, it doesn’t get any better than this wild coastal walk, which offers great views of Connecticut and Fishers Island, New York. A shorebird stopover point and foraging area for wading birds, and hosts hawk, songbird, and monarch butterfly flights in fall.

The Book & Tackle Shop
The smell of 50,000 old volumes mingles with the sea.
122 Bay Street, (401)596-0051


Don’t Miss:

Flying Horse Carousel
At Watch Hill Beach, a vintage herd of tiny horses dangling on chains; costs a pittance to fly.
