The name change from Sand Hill Cove to Roger W. Wheeler State Beach happened on August 15, 1970. Captain Roger W. Wheeler (1907-1969) was the creator of the Rhode Island State Life-Saving System. Without a cadre of life guards at the beaches, who promoted safe swimming practices, the public use of our coastal waters would have amounted to little more than an “attractive nuisance.” Trained, alert, and capable life guards have prevented many family tragedies over the years. Between 1996 and 1997, a redesign and renovation of the beach facilities at Roger Wheeler produced a new pavilion, coin-operated hot showers, a playground, concession building, a life-guard tower, and an environmental educational area.  (This excerpt taken from the Roger W. Wheeler State Beach website)
From the Hurricane of ’38 through successive storms in 1954 and 1955, light-weight and well-built structures along this coastline were from time to time swept away. Beginning in 1956 the State Department of Public Works began acquiring storm-ravaged land by public condemnation. Additional purchases by the state occurred in 1967, and the Division of Parks and Recreation, now in DEM, built a modern beach facility and took over the care and maintenance of the beach, totaling more than 144 acres. It is formally known as East Matunuck State Beach. (This excerpt taken from the East Matunuck State Beach website)

This beach does fill to capacity during sunny summer weekends. (This excerpt taken from the Misquamicut State Beach website)

Located on the south shore of Rhode Island in Misquamicut, overlooking Block Island and the tip of Long Island, Atlantic Beach Park has been a charming landmark in this area dating back to 1921.  It is still owned and operated by the Trefes family. The original name was "Atlantic Beach Casino", meaning a place to enjoy the beautiful surf, where, in days gone past, families and friends would sit in rocking chairs on the boardwalk, enjoying the sun and swimming in the warm waters of the Atlantic Ocean.  (This excerpt taken from the Atlantic Beach Park website)
