Fort Adams State Park

One of the largest seacoast fortifications built in the US, Fort Adams provides a visual record of military history for the 1820's to the end of WWII. The walls of the fort, the "listening tunnels," and panoramic views of Narragansett Bay combine to make this an interesting and educational stop. Guided tours are available daily on the hour from 10 am to 4 pm beginning in late May.
