Governor’s Bay Day

(7.25) This Sunday is Governor’s Bay Day which means free parking at all eight Rhode Island state beaches. But wait, there’s more:

The day includes family-friendly activities and free parking at all Rhode Island state beaches. New this year, the public is invited to fish in Rhode Island saltwaters without a saltwater fishing license from Friday, July 23 through Sunday, July 25. The Rhode Island Public Transit Authority (RIPTA) also will waive the roundtrip fare on all service to South County beaches on Route 66 (URI/Galilee). Service to the beach will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis.

State beaches:

Charlestown Breachway, Charlestown/ East Beach, Charlestown/ East Matunuck State Beach, South Kingstown/ Misquamicut State Beach, Westerly/ Roger W. Wheeler State Beach, Narragansett/ Salty Brine State Beach, Narragansett/  Scarborough State Beaches (North and South), Narragansett.

Seen here is Roger Wheeler State Beach noted for its fine white sand, calm water, and a very slight drop-off.

Protected from Block Island Sound by an extensive breakwater barrier, this is a popular beach for young children and families due to the gentle surf, playground, and modern beach pavilion with a kid-friendly environmental educational area.

The free activities will be offered at Roger W. Wheeler State Beach including a saltwater fly-tying station, arts and crafts, and environmental education. Activities will be held from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Show your love for the bay: Carry out what you carry in!
