Fun place to take the kids! And it's FREE!
This time of year (Winter) it's super cold and super windy but I still had a great time taking pictures and video.
The fort is on the other side of the Jamestown Bridge from those giant mansions in Newport. It's a really small fort and the site dates back to the Revolutionary War. It's surrounded by a state park reservation and now I wonder if swimming is permitted in the warmer months. I'll have to check that out next time.
Enjoy this short adventure!
