Point Judith is a traditional New England fishing village significantly unchanged for 50+ years unlike more People Magazine type celebrity resorts in nearby Massachusetts where you'll find the national clothing chain stores, fast food restaurants, Water Slide Parks, arcades, and traffic congestion. Here you will only find sand dunes adjacent to the beaches, bird sanctuaries, sea kayaking, a fishing fleet, sail boats going by restaurant windows and decks, and quiet restful days. Yes, there is some nightlife, even world class concerts, but it is 30 minutes away in Newport or Foxwoods Casino where most long time vacationers to this area feel it belongs to maintain the charm of this unique setting.
Other Activities: Serviceable golf clubs, balls, and bag provided.
