“WATCH WHERE YOU PARK!!!!”

Watch Hill Lighthouse
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 31 August 2012

We took a day trip to Watch Hill to put the kids on the Flying Horse Carousel and to see the lighthouse. Found a parking spot on Larkin Rd and was excited that it was in the middle of the lighthouse and the carousel! Read the sign 4 times and never noticed that it said permit parking only. You needed binoculars to see it, especially since 3 HOUR PARKING is in such big, bold letters, thats all you see!!! Needless to say, came back to the car one hour later to a $75 parking ticket! Shame on you Watch Hill for robbing tourists of $75 for a PARKING TICKET!!!!! Most cars along the street had tickets under their windshield wipers. Save your time and go somewhere better! Nothing was that great about this town...wouldnt bother even passing through!

Great spot to watch the sunset or to take pictures. Last year we did our family photo session here, and the pictures came out great.

It is a nice walk down to the lighthouse at sunset which my husband and I do regularly in the summer months. I don't know if they do tours but I went in the lighthouse years ago with a school group and I really don't recall anything spectacular about it.

overlooking a promontory overlooking an ocean beach and a bay, flanked by beautiful shingled homes, the Lighthouse is worth a quick stop or a bag lunch, or if you fish, a few hours on the rocks.
