Parks and nature in Westerly

Top nature recommendations from locals

Scenic Lookout
“Home to the infamous Taylor Swift! Catch a glimpse while browsing the shops or taking a walk to the lighthouse. Also be sure to check out The Ocean House and if you have littles ones, The Flying Horse Carousel is the oldest operating carousel in the US in which the horses are suspended from chains. This is conveniently located next to St. Clare's Annex which has the best homemade ice cream in the area. Olympia Tea Room has great dinner with great views as well!”

Beach
“Dubois Beach is a tiny beach located at the tip of Stonington and offers nearly a 360 degree view of the water. There are no services at this beach but it is a lovely place to watch the sunset, read a good book and relax. Simply gorgeous!”

Trail
“Some of the properties that Westerly Land Trust owns are open to the public and have nice hiking trails. An interesting one down the street from us is the "Dr. John Champlin Glacier Park". Here there are signs explaining how the glacier formed the land we live on. From "Charlie's Overlook" you can look over Winnapaug Pond to Misquamicut Beach out to the Atlantic Ocean and sometimes Block Island and Long Island are in sight. Go to westerlylandtrust.org for detailed information.”
