      An abandoned fort turned state park, Fort Wetherill State Park is a unique mix of history, urban exploration, and scenic views of the ocean and Narragansett Bay. This is also a great place for fishing, boating, and scuba diving. The fort dates to 1895 and was in use until the end of WWII, and there was a previous fort at the same site used during the Revolutionary War. This is a fantastic place for an adventure or just to take in the scenery.

      If you go:
      There are no entrance fees. Be careful inside the old fort, there is a lot of debris and trash found scattered about the rooms and passageways. Jamestown offers a variety of hotels, Bed and Breakfasts and dining options.
