There are a surprising number of lighthouses in the Ocean State. You can visit over 20 lights, all located in a close geographical area.

To the west, just across the Connecticut border, is Watch Hill Light, nestled among a gaggle of classic Rhode Island oceanfront "cottages."

Much of Rhode Island is defined by the Narraganset Bay. The octagonal Point Judith Light guards the western entrance to the bay, while the diminutive Castle Hill Light secures the eastern shore, south of Newport. In between, at the southern tip of Conanicut Island, stands the stately and historic Beavertail Light. Just off Newport Harbor, under the beautiful suspension bridge connecting Newport to Conanicut Island, sits the restored Rose Island Light.

Just west of Pt. Judith you can take the Block Island Ferry from Galilee. On Block Island are the grand Victorian Southeast Light, and the long-abandoned North Light.
