Point Judith Light Just Down Route 108: The Pt. Judith Light and Coast Guard Station sit on the western entrance to Narragansett Bay. The original wooden tower was built in 1810, but was blown over during a storm six years later. A replacement stone tower lasted until 1857, when the current octagonal tower was erected.
The light is easily reached on Rt. 108, just past the turn-off to Galilee and the Block Island ferry. Turn right after Iggy's.
Newport, via Jamestown, Just Over The Newport Bridge: A fantastic day trip into the gilded age. Visit historic mansions such as Rosecliff or Marble House.

International Tennis Hall of Fame: Visit and see the history including the famous grass courts.
