A gem of a spot in tranquil Rhode Island

Westerly may not be a Rhode Island big gun, but what it lacks in global recognition it makes up for with its picture-perfect town center, Victorian-era central park, and Atlantic views. A popular summer getaway, a trip here is often associated with time spent on soft-sand beaches, enjoying lazy days with friends and family. There’s more to Westerly than beaches, though. The town offers an array of boutique shopping and tempting dining options, particularly in affluent Watch Hill. Westerly vacation rentals range from historic New England cottages to modern waterfront condos, so finding a place to call your own has never been so easy.

Things to do

Festival fun and cultural appeal in Westerly

Westerly knows how to throw a party and this is best experienced at one of the town’s regular festivals. Both spring and fall festivals, as well as an annual Shakespeare Festival and the Summer Pops, draw in crowds of up to 20,000. Join locals and out-of-towners to enjoy local works of art, live entertainment, and family-friendly attractions such as petting zoos and Ferris wheels. Elsewhere, you can inject a little culture into your stay by heading to Napatree Point, the site of an old Navy post by the name of Fort Mansfield, or make a splash at the seasonal Water Wizz of Westerly, with its “super speed” slides.

Activities

Taking it easy in Westerly

Take life at your own pace in Westerly. The 3-mile Misquamicut Beach provides the perfect backdrop for kayaking and paddle boarding, while charismatic captains at shoreline marinas invite you to venture further into the water on a variety of year-round boat trips and cruises. When it’s time for a change of scenery, the plentiful shops and restaurants in the town’s hip downtown area are complemented by the chance to wander through the town’s 14-acre Victorian-era Wilcox Park. Events at the Colonial and Granite Theatres will help you round off your evening before returning to your Westerly vacation rental.

Weather

An ever-changing landscape in Westerly

New England’s ever-changing landscape gives Westerly year-round appeal. Admittedly, the winters can be frosty, but the town’s boutique stores and array of dining options will provide an enticing escape from the cold. Spring offers warmer days and the first signs of the region’s flowers, while summer is the perfect time to enjoy the Atlantic beaches, with temperatures from June through September often surpassing 70. It is fall, however, that often attracts the most travelers. The blazing colors, combined with more comfortable temperatures, make October a great time to visit Westerly and indeed anywhere in New England.

Natural features

There’s more to Westerly than beautiful beaches

While sandy spots such as East Beach and Watch Hill Beach take center stage in Westerly, there’s more to the landscape than the chance to top up your tan. Green spaces in neighboring Charlestown provide alternative vistas to explore. At the Ninigret National Wildlife Refuge, an 858-acre space named after an original Narragansett chief, salt marshes and freshwater wetlands provide a beautiful backdrop for birdwatching and photography. The nearby Burlingame State Park and Kimball Sanctuary offer boating, swimming, and fishing. And if you can bear to leave the comfort of your Westerly vacation rental, you can spend the night camping under the stars.
