There are endless ways to explore Rhode Island's rich cultural and architectural heritage, breathtaking scenery and mouth-watering cuisine. With so much to do and see (and eat!), it can be quite a challenge to narrow down your pathway to fun and learning.
That's why we developed the Rhode Island Heritage Trails: to help you discover treasures waiting for you in every corner of our state. We've put together a great selection of trails arranged by region and theme. Just scan the trails below to see which fit your special interests and timeframe. We've made it easy to modify them any way you want and arrange them over as many days as you choose. Of course, we know you'll work up an appetite along your trail, so we also recommend some local food favorites you shouldn't miss. We point out some great places to find that special gift, work of art or antique to remind you of your visit. We provide tips on places to enjoy local theatre and art. For the photographer, we suggest some excellent vantage points for your snapshots.
