Narragansett has been a tourist city and seaside resort since the 1800s; it is full of activities to engage in.

For a touch of culture and a bit of history, visit the South County Museum on Strathmore Street. Artifacts from early American settlers making home in Narragansett and South County are proudly on display. Samples of early life such as a general store, kitchen, schoolroom and more, are a part of the permanent exhibit. Also a part of the museum is a blacksmith shop, crafts, a carriage barn, a working print shop and more early settlement shops. The museum puts on special events when open from May to October. This is the only museum in Narragansett but there are countless in the area; for a listing of all the region's museums, click here.
