Used the water ferry to get to the Park. Great place to see if you're into history. As a Brit it was interesting to see the way the defences were arranged to protect Newport.

Went to visit the Nina and the Pinta when they were in port. Park is a great place to visit, picnic, spend the day.

Came with some friends to enjoy the chowderfest. Parking was far away with a 20 minute walk. Did not see any handicap parking and some people in wheelchairs being pushed from far away. If u plan on getting to an event, get their early

A Fort and a park the whole family can enjoy. You can walk the outside of the fort without paying but the tour is pretty good.

Really beautiful spot to visit. The views are stunning. A great place to visit and watch the sail boats. The fort is neat to see if your into that sort of stuff.

Is Fort Adam's worth the trip in the dead of winter? We have an 11yo boy who loves all things Military, but if it's too cold, he won't want to go.
