A visit to the Trolls in Rhode Island

It has been a long spring and with the weather finally starting to feel more like summer we were ready for a drive along the Rhode Island Coast. Recently a friend told us about the new trolls in Rhode Island by artist Thomas Dambo. His trolls are scattered word wide. Many people have begun planing trips to the various locations to find his works of art.

Our day trip started in Westerly, RI and followed route 1A along the Rhode Island Coast line. First stop was to visit the Trolls Greta Granite and Eric Rock Located at Ninigret Park in Charlestown, RI. The path ways to find them if dry are a light walk and accessible to most people. For those who use wheelchairs or walkers Greta Granite will be a bit more difficult. After finding the trolls a few of our kids ran over to the park for a bit while we took our time walking around the pond before continuing our drive.

Our next destination took us to Champlins Seafood in Naragansett, RI. A family favorite we love stopping in for Fish and chips and Chowder a few times each summer. Located right near the Block Island Ferry terminal you can grab a Lobster Roll and watch the sailboats and ferries.

Parking is limited, but if you are able to score a spot, the walk along the boardwalk is fun for everyone. We didn't stay for sun set at Salty Brine State Beach this time, but I do highly recommend it.

Our final stop before taking the Jamestown and Newport Bridges home was Point Judith Lighthouse in Naragansett, RI. This working Lighthouse is part of a US Coastguard Station. A local family has graciously allowed visitors to park and experience this treasure.

Whether you are looking for Trolls or a New England Coastal Drive, this is a perfect day trip to experience it all!
