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.

So much fun for families with this welcoming inn as your coastal headquarters

Families have thought of the Watch Hill Inn as their summer home away from home for years. Here’s why: Between the gorgeous inn located in the heart of Watch Hill village and its sister inns Ocean House and Weekapaug, there are pools; private beaches where you can kayak, paddleboard or sail (or take surfing lessons); special kid-centric programs from scavenger hunts to arts and crafts; shuffleboard, croquet and squash; even nature and fishing excursions onboard motorboats. In the area, family fun means visiting the creatures at The Dinosaur Place, riding flying horses on a carousel, boarding bumper boats at Adventureland, checking out animals on a local farm, exploring a cider mill or nature center or aquarium, hiking, biking and shopping.

Family fun a specialty at this resort perched on the Rhode Island shore

Families love Weekapaug Inn, and it’s not hard to see why. At its cozy, home-away-from-home location on the Rhode Island shoreline overlooking Quonochontaug Pond, the inn emphasizes eclectic activities on land and sea. On the water, go with the inn’s naturalist on a crabbing excursion, grab a kayak or paddleboard (or kite!) and enjoy the inn’s private beach (don’t forget lunch on the Bathhouse deck), hang out in the outdoor saline lap pool or take a boat tour on the Quonnie Queen. On land, the inn’s sweeping, grassy back lawn is perfect for croquet (or just rolling around) and a kids’ program offers everything from scavenger hunts and hikes to team-building fun and arts and crafts.
