Location: Warwick, Rhode Island
Welcome to Freedom Boat Club of Warwick:
Spectacular, sublime and venerable.
Founded by Samuel Gorton in 1642, Warwick has venerable heritage and offers a treasure-trove of American military, nautical and industrial history.
A pleasant boat ride to the Warwick Neck and Conimicut Lighthouses provide a spectacular view and photo opportunity. Both are still functioning (though not open to the public) and serve as glorious reminders of the past.
Cross the bay and explore the neighboring islands and enjoy a quiet picnic lunch away from all the chaos of everyday life and then set out to explore the more than 100 miles of coastline that Narragansett Bay has to offer. The possibilities are endless.
On others days, visit historic Newport and Wickford harbors where you can dock and enjoy fresh local fare while taking in the beautiful surroundings. After lunch, take a leisurely cruise to view the world famous Newport Mansions and Hammersmith Farm (the former summer home of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis) or to post card picturesque Mackeral Cove where the only thing you will need to be worry about is your kids laughing too hard as they cannon ball you time and time again.
As for your kids or grandkids, they will find countless hours of enjoyment and build memories for a lifetime as they swim, tube, fish, and enjoy exploring the many coves on the bay..not to mention experiencing the sights and sounds of the Blue Angles screaming a mere 300 feet overhead at the annual air show.
And as you head home, you will certainly want to take your time to soak in the amazing sunsets as you drift back to the marina knowing that reality is about to set in all too soon. Perhaps a quick dip in the marina pool before you go home will help delay reality a little bit longer.
