Fun-Size Your Summer in Rhode Island!

The sun is shining, the waves are lapping, and the clam cakes are frying. It can only mean one thing: it's summer in Rhode Island!

You'll find that summer here is just a little bit different, and here's why: We've got everything you want to do this summer packed into one fun-sized destination. Do you want to surf in the morning and hit Providence Gallery Night 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...

That's what it means to be fun-sized. In Rhode Island, you can have it all and do it all this summer - and since you're not wasting lots of time getting from A to B, you can pack much more into your visit. So, fun-size your summer this year in Rhode Island and find out what locals have known for ages: that big definitely doesn't equal better!
