Things to do

Discover history, culture and remote islands

Loved by locals and visitors alike, Theatre by the Sea has been entertaining guests for over 60 years. From Hair to Cats, nights at the historic venue are guaranteed to have you singing along.

From here you can explore rocky ocean bluffs, ride along the beach, visit galleries, family-run farms and more.


Live the East Coast beach life

Point Judith is one of the East Coast's top surf destinations, with big swells and long right-handers. If you'd rather relax, head down to Scarborough Beach where you'll find a boardwalk, picnic tables and lifeguard stands. Point Judith boasts one of the biggest squid-fishing fleets in America, which means devouring calamari is a rite of passage. Don't miss the local specialty - crispy fried squid served with garlic butter and spicy cherry peppers. While there are plenty of seafood restaurants to choose from, there's nothing like an ocean-inspired feast cooked in the kitchen of your Point Judith vacation rental property.
