With some great road trip options in the surrounding area, renting a car makes good sense. Without one, it’d be much more difficult to enjoy all that Weekapaug Beach, 50 miles away, has to offer. Soak up the sights beginning with Misquamicut State Beach, The Flying Horse Carousel and Water Wizz of Westerly. Situated 20 miles away, Westbrook Town Beach is another popular tourist destination. If you visit, make sure you check out Essex Steam Train, Hammonasset Beach State Park and Clinton Crossing Premium Outlets.
