Whether you ferry out of Point Judith or Newport there are lots of places to stay and things to see in the area ... of course you could spend a week in Newport alone and enjoy everything there is to see and do ... I would recommend strongly if you have to drive that long to get down there..try to get over to BeaverTail to the lighthouse ... the point there is just beautiful and peaceful. BeaverTail is in Jamestown (tiny island that is bridged from Narragansett on one side and Newport on the other. One of my favorite places in RI.

I enjoy Newport a lot - I love the Japanese culture and they have a cool black ships festival every fall. Their wine festival last month was also very fun. The mansions of course are a great treat to go visit. They have some very delicious (but rather expensive) restaurants too ... Christie's is one I've been to recently that was tasty.

I just went "lighthouse collecting" yesterday. That is going to take pictures of as many lighthouses as I could. I started in Newburyport, MA and worked my way south. We (my husband & I) ended up spending more time on Cape Ann than we expected too. We took pictures of 9 lighthouses. Eventually, we will get into RI for lighthouse collecting. If we are near a lighthouse when we go on our Block Island trip, you better believe we'll do out best to go see the lighthouse <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

I just put up the picture of the Newburyport Rear Range Light which is currently on my front page.

Yup, I've poked through that one. There is a few really good lighthouse sites. I use them to figure which lighthouses are in the area that I may be in so I can get a few pictures. I have a, what I hope is complete, list of lighthouses at my site under the Odds & Ends category.
