After your morning coffee, head to Narragansett Beach following Bonnet Shores Road/RT 108 straight to the beach.  Hang out by the Narragansett Beach wall and watch the waves.  If the weather is nice enough, grab ice cream at '''Nana’s''' (28A Pier Market Place, Narragansett, Rhode Island, 02882, +1 401-782-2705) while you watch.  Nana’s is slightly pricey and is known for its out-the-door lines in the summer months, but the ice cream is held in high regard.  The ice cream shop is not fully operational during the winter months, but does have some winter hours, so call ahead to be sure they are open.

For lunch, head across the street from the Pier to '''The Picnic Basket''' (20 Kingstown Road, Narragansett, Rhode Island, 02882, +1 401-782-2284).  The Picnic Basket is a popular local spot with a large sandwich menu, not to be compared to Subway or Quiznos.  It is small and not typically a sit-down restaurant, though there are tables and chairs inside.  Note that The Picnic Basket is only open Tuesday through Saturday and closes at 5 p.m. during winter hours – if your travels fall on a Sunday or Monday, see list of alternatives for lunch options.

After lunch, take a walk on Narragansett Beach, or browse the local surf shop next door to The Picnic Basket, '''Warm Winds''' (6 Kingstown Rd, Narragansett, Rhode Island 02882, +1 401-789-9040).  Alternatively, you may want to see Scarborough Beach, located about five minutes down Ocean Road from Narragansett Beach.  Narragansett Beach is the more popular of the two, but Scarborough has plenty of fields for outdoor activities such as soccer or football if it is a nice day.

After exploring the beaches, end your two days in Narragansett by checking out the '''University of Rhode Island''' campus.  Be prepared to walk, as the campus is a decent size (it takes about fifteen to twenty minutes to walk from top to bottom) and it is located on a hill.  Be sure to get a visitors pass from the Visitor’s Center (45 Upper College Rd, Kingston, Rhode Island 02881 +1 401-874-2133; Office Hours:  Monday through Friday 7:30am – 3:30pm and Saturdays 9:00am – 2:00pm) if you are not visiting on the weekend.  URI Parking services is constantly towing and tickets cost about $120.  Take in the architecture of the new and old buildings, check out the Emporium located at the top of campus for food, or visit the Memorial Union (50 Lower College Road, Kingston, Rhode Island 02881, +1 401-874-2726) near the bottom of the quad to visit the URI Book Store (closes at 4p.m. most days) or purchase URI paraphernalia.
