“at the mouth of the Newport Harbor”
Situated at the mouth of the Newport Harbor, Fort Adams State Park offers an exceptional panoramic view of both Newport Harbor and the East Passage of Narragansett Bay. The park offers a wide range of activities including salt water bathing, fishing, boating, soccer, rugby, and picnicking. Fort Adams is perhaps best known for its annual summer concerts when the Jazz Festival, and the Folk Festival draw thousands to enjoy the music and beautiful surroundings. Festivals are presented by Newport Festivals Foundation, Inc.
Every Halloween there's a scary haunted house in the Fort. What's cool about "Fear at Fort Adams State Park" is that 100% of the proceeds directly benefit The Fort Adams Trust, which goes towards restoration and maintenance of the historic fort. There are several spooky attractions that are sure to make you scream. The Tunnels of Terror are full of ghouls and monsters, and with the use of strobe lights, dense fog and sudden, loud and scary noises, it's not recommended for children. However, exploring the ruins of the Officers Quarters are relatively more low-key and un-guided. There's even a Halloween Carnival Midway that has lots of fun games.
