Goddard Memorial State Beach

This is one of Rhode Island’s best, if not most popular, state parks, citing a horde of oceanfront activity. It is immensely popular with picnickers, sunbathers, golfers, and equestrians alike.

Regardless of your preference, anyone could enjoy the plethora of tree species and the thick forest, back from the coastline. Taking them in is easy as well, whether by horseback, hiking or mountain biking. Other activities include a performing arts pavilion with shows in the summer, bridle trails, frequent concerts, and more.
