I had the pleasure of visiting Scusset Beach State Reservation last Sunday. Scusset Beach has many of the rewards of visiting the Cape without having to deal with the bridge traffic, especially trying to head home on a warm Sunday afternoon in the summer. It’s especially nice that there’s also access to the Cape Cod Canal Rail Trail and it’s easily less than a tank of gas to get there. Combined with the snack bar, other facilities and the great restaurants right down the road and you have a great place to spend a hot day in the summer!! If you’re riding a bike making it to the other end of the trail also means that there’s Del’s Iced Lemonade (a person favorite taste of Rhode Island) or ice cream too! Check out my page with more information and enjoy the video of an empty beach in June (a rarity thanks to the less than stellar weather we had last weekend)..
