Newport RI Panoramic Photo

Plenty of parking at the Sachuest Point Refuge in March. If you are on vacation /holiday, and you find Downtown Newport, the Newport Mansions, and even the Newport Cliff Walk are getting too crowded, this is a suprisingly wide-open area just a few minutes away by car. Lots of ocean scenery and shoreline birds to be seen here.

If you like the idea of mixing up some walking / hiking trails in with your vacation, there is what I'd call a "companion" site of this refuge right down the road called the Norman Bird Sanctuary.
