Rhode Island family friendly lodging, hotels, resorts welcome kids

Since Rhode Island is a vacation paradise with lots of outdoor and indoor attractions and entertainments, it follows that RI hotels, motels, and lodgings are family friendly. Accommodations in every price range place children and families close to fun adventures like the Newport and South County beaches, Roger Williams Park and Zoo and the Providence Children’s Museum, and the many warm-weather festivals, from dragon boats in Woonsocket to seafood in Charlestown, that take place throughout the year.

It’s easy to see why families over the years have fallen in love with this resort

For countless families, the scenic Weekapaug Inn, on the Rhode Island shoreline overlooking lovely Quonochontaug Pond and the Atlantic, has been their fun, go-to place to vacation together. The comfortable rooms and suites are suitable for stretching out, the dining is fresh, farm-to-table fare, and the pool is sparkling. But it’s the activities that are the big draw, from complimentary kayaks, paddleboards and pedal boats to crabbing and exploring the tideline or going on a nature walk with the resort’s naturalist. Sandy 2-mile Weekapaug Beach and a lagoon boat tour beckon, as do kites, fishing poles, lawn games – even a special hunt to discover “fairy houses” on the property.
