Narragansett

A popular summer resort destination during the Victorian era, Narragansett still has as its main landmark, The Towers, the last remaining section of the famous 1886 Narragansett Pier Casino designed by McKim, Mead, and White. The town is home to a large commercial fishing fleet and four beaches. Take a scenic drive down Route 1A to see the ocean and grand old shingle-style homes. You'll eventually wind up at Point Judith Lighthouse, which has been in operation since the 19th century.
