Summer officially starts this weekend when Rhode Island State Beaches open for business. In other words, starting Saturday, May 27, you must pay to park. The beaches are always “open.” This is still America goddammit.
Rhode Island residents will be charged $6 on weekdays and $7 on weekends and holidays. Non-residents pay twice as much. A season pass is $30 and must be affixed to the windshield. The determination of resident and non-resident, for purposes of administering RI State Beach fees, is based solely upon the state of vehicle registration.
Go here for info on beach passes. State beaches include:
Charlestown Breachway . . . East Beach . . . Misquamicut State Beach
Roger Wheeler State Beach . . . Salty Brine State Beach
