Shopping & Things To Do

Salt Pond Shopping Center

You can spend all day here and find everything you need:  grocery, retail clothing, banks, fitness stores, vision care, etc. Salt Pond is by far the biggest shopping plaza in Narragansett and the “go-to” place for all of your essentials (tends to be very busy!) Dedicated shoppers drive here to visit some the largest Marshalls and HomeGoods stores in the state.

Narragansett Pier (crossing of Beach St and Ocean Road)

This beachside center of town is the best spot for walkability shopping. Check out the local shops and restaurants, walk along Narragansett Town Beach, or visit the Towers and Memorial Square.

Restaurants & Nightlife

The restaurant scene in Narragansett is one of its biggest attractions. There are well-known seafood restaurants along Narragansett Pier, Galilee, and Point Judith. Plus a variety of “classic” Rhode Island spots, unassuming cocktail bars, and taverns by the sea.

Recreation & Activities

The state and public beaches in Narragansett are some of the best you’ll find in Rhode Island (and perhaps the entire North East).

Roger Wheeler & Salty Brine State Beaches

These beaches extend along the same beachfront in Galilee. Both are popular for families with young children, due to the extensive breakwater barrier protecting them and gentle surf. Both beaches are located in the Point Judith section of Narragansett, which is the southernmost part of town.

Narragansett Town Beach

Located right in the center of town near shops and restaurants. Ample parking spaces along 1A and Ocean Road. Residents of Gansett can park and enjoy the beach free of charge, but non-residents must pay a “walk on free” to visit.

Scarborough State Beach

Narragansett’s most popular beach with over 10,000 daily visitors during the peak summer season. It has approx. 2,325 ft. of beach frontage along the Block Island Sound. There is a north and south side of the Scarborough, each with a pavillion, showers, observation towers, and a boardwalk for public use.

Narrow River

Separates Narragansett from South Kingstown and open for public swimming, kayaking, and fishing.

Local Parks and Protected Areas

Point Judith Lighthouse 

A very popular tourist attraction in Rhode Island. Scenic views of the Block Island Sound and places to walk around and view the historic lighthouse.

The Towers 

Iconic historic building on Narragansett’s downtown pier. Hosts many private weddings and other events throughout the year open to the public.

Village of Galilee 

One of the best places in Rhode Island to buy and eat fresh seafood. Walkable and lined with restaurants, beaches, shops, and public recreation areas.

The University of Rhode Island’s “Bay Campus” is located in Narragansett as well. This campus houses URI’s prestigious Graduate School of Oceanography.

Transportation & Getting Around

Cross Street

Route 1 (Post Road) — runs along the entire narrow strip of Narragansett, so it’s relatively easy to access and travel along the South Shore as needed. However, the town limits of Narragansett contains only a few middle highways which connect this narrow strip of land from North to South.

Route 1A — runs through the entire town of Narragansett from north to south (becomes Ocean Road heading south past Narragansett Pier). Continues north to the 138 and further into North Kingstown / Wickford.

Route 108 — stems off the Post Road junction and heads south through the small farmlands of Narragansett. Ends in Galilee just before Point Judith.

Ferry Transport

The Block Island Ferry

There are two options (traditional and high-speed) for travelers to Block Island from Galilee. The traditional ferry runs seven days a week at scheduled departure times.
