The beach community of Narragansett is a magical summer vacation! A short walk to beautiful Scarborough Beach. Sandy dunes and 2 boardwalks; a short drive (5 min.) to Sand Hill Cove Beach or famous Narragansett Pier Beach and Towers; that's all it takes. Drive 5 mins. to the historic fishing Port of Galilee for great seafood, souvenir shopping, fishing charters; a day trip by ferry to Block Island (rent a horse, bike or moped there). Don't forget to visit the outside deck at George's of Galilee Restaurant for eats, drinks, music, and sunsets while watching the boats come in! Do you like 'chowder & clam cakes'? Ever try a 'doughboy'? Go to R.I. favorite, Aunt Carries Restaurant, or Iggy's Doughboys and Chowder House. Sports fans love Charlie-O's for all the T.V.'s, great food, and plenty of pool tables. 'Spain Rest.' for upscale dining. Live bands? That's Bon Vue Inn! D.J.? Coast Gaurd House. Beaches, boating, fishing, surfing, seafood, and serenity! The romantic Atlantic, it's magical!
