Your Summer 2020 in Rhode Island

Let's be honest. 2020 has been a rough year. Now summer is finally here, and in Rhode Island, the sun is shining, the waves are lapping, and the clam cakes are frying. We're ready to welcome you back - or for the first time - to the Ocean State for the summer vacation you need this year.  

Do you want to surf in the morning and dine on Federal Hill in the evening? No problem, you can get from the beach to the capital city in under an hour. How about touring Brown University in the morning and the Newport Mansions in the afternoon? Easy-peasy, just hop on the Providence to Newport Ferry. The hour it takes to arrive in Newport gives you just enough time to enjoy a cocktail and take in Rhode Island's beauty from the water. How about a some biking or bouldering in Lincoln Woods, followed by a nice, cold, locally-brewed beer? You're in luck, there are four craft breweries within 5 miles of Lincoln Woods - with 28 more throughout the state. Not to mention that our very own island, Block Island, full of gorgeous beaches, relaxing walking trails and panoramic ocean views is just a quick ferry ride from the mainland. And that's only the beginning...

There is so much to do this summer in Rhode Island, and whether you've got a week to spend or a day, you can get around quickly and easily to maximize your fun. Check out Rhode Island's COVID-19 information here.
