The only thing more irritating than not being able to find a parking spot is having to rip a $100 bill into tiny, coin-shaped fragments that fit inside the meter when you do. Give your fingers a well-earned rest with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get a beach outing at Easton’s Beach in Newport (up to a $78 total value). The outing includes:
- Four weekday public-parking passes (a $10 value each)
- One weekend public-parking pass (a $20 value)
- One rental of a chair, umbrella, or boogie board (up to an $8 value)
- 10 carousel rides (a $1 value each)<p>
Two weekday public-parking passes can be traded in for one weekend public-parking pass. Parking at Easton’s Beach is free during the off-season, which runs until Memorial Day Weekend.
Each summer from Memorial Day through Labor Day, beachgoers flock to Easton’s Beach to enjoy white, sandy shores, a historic carousel, and free family-friendly events. After parking their car in the public lot, beachgoers can dig their toes into the fair sand of Newport’s largest public ocean-surf beach from atop a beach chair or under an umbrella. Boogie-board rentals let beachgoers wade in the ocean as state-certified lifeguards keep a wary eye, whereas rides on the vibrantly colored 1950s carousel delight riders with antique fixtures and mounts carved in the shape of famous Beat poets. Free special events, including family concerts and children’s shows, light up the beach during summer evenings. Easton’s Beach also features a boardwalk lined with eateries and shops to visit while holding hands with strangers.
With 3/4 mile of pristine white sand along the oceanfront, Easton's Beach invites tourists and locals alike to relax, play, and take in the natural beauty of Newport. Kids frolic on a playground and a charming 1950s carousel, and newlyweds exchange vows by the seaside and celebrate in the nearby Rotunda Ballroom. A troop of state-certified lifeguards keep a watchful eye on swimmers, as beach-goers ride boogie boards in the surf.
