Light Houses of Rhode Island THE guide and gallery for the lighthouses of Rhode Island

Goat Island Light

Goat Island light is on the north end of Goat Island in Newport Rhode Island.  The Causeway out to the island has ~10 parking spaces on the right hand side you can use to park in, otherwise pay attention to the parking signs around the neighborhood.  Newport allows you to park during the day, but there are meters around and you need a permit at night.  You can also go out to Goat Island as well but the lighthouse is on the hotel’s property, so you’re going to want to stop by the bar for a drink on the way to keep yourself out of trouble. 😉  The Newport Bridge offers the perfect backdrop.

The purpose of Light Houses of Rhode Island is to help you find all 21 lighthouses in our state and take some great images of them. If you'd like to buy my images they're available in the gallery as well. Please check out each light's page to see directions on where to park and suggestions on shooting each light.
