Written DirectionsEnter jamestown by way of Route 138 East (over the jamestown bridge). Turn right on North road. Merge right onto southwest ave. Southwest ave turns into beavertail rd. Take Beavertail Rd all the way to the lighthouse and loop around the tip of jamestown. Head back north on Beavertail rd and then merge right onto Hamilton Ave. Take Hamilton Ave to Walcott ave and take a left. Heading north, Walcott Ave turns into Conanicus Ave. Follow north to East Shore Rd. Take East Shore road north to N. Main Rd. Take a left. Follow N. Main road back to 138W. This route then connects with many great other routes.
SceneryThis route takes you through lush farmland, through beach towns, and then to the dramatic cliff-side that Rhode Island is known for. Beavertail Lighthouse is part of the tour which is just stunning to look at. Near the lighthouse is a gorgeous park for you to take a rest, use the pristine outdoor bathrooms. You can even take a swim if you're an adventurous rock jumper. I promise this trip is worth the view!
Drive EnjoymentSome roads are smooth, but there are a few that are not ideal. Other than that, sweeping curves, minimal traffic. It is relatively flat.
Tourism OpportunitiesThere is a town in Jamestown that has some food, gas, small cute cafes. This is separate from the more back country area where the lighthouse and beach is. So you can get your needs met in town and then pack a lunch and take it to beavertail lighthouse and enjoy a sunset or the grand view. Bathrooms at the lighthouse.
