Brenton Point State Park:
Newport, RI

Brenton Point State Park in Newport is an excellent choice for a picnic or just to relax. It offers majestic views of the Atlantic Ocean as it meets Narragansett Bay.

The views are outstanding and relaxing. Brenton Point is a popular spot and usually has quite a few people there. There are plenty of picnic tables. If you want someplace less populated, but beautiful nonetheless, drive through the park a bit and you should be able to find an empty spot. When we visited, we had supper one evening in a secluded area on the shore.
