This awesome state park welcomes guests for picnics, hiking, fishing, bird watching, or enjoying the magnificent ocean views. In addition, the Portuguese Discovery Monument is on-site, which pays tribute to the maritime navigators who assisted in the discovery of the area’s trade routes.

We think a visit here is one of the best things to do in Newport!
