Things to do in Rhode Island
We've got it going on in Rhode Island. From beaches, water sports and boating, to art, history and dining, to hiking, biking and bouldering, there is truly something for everyone. We've got all of the fun, culture, luxury and artistic ethos of a big city mixed with a cool, laid-back coastal vibe and a dash of historic, old New England charm. The best part is that anything in the state is never more than about an hour away from where you are. It's true. If we locals are expecting to go anywhere more than an hour away, we pack a lunch. Maybe an overnight bag. True story. So pack your days full of Rhode Island adventures from some of New England's best surfing, to stargazing in some of the darkest skies of the northeast, to bird watching for our more than 400+ species of feathered friends, to mansions, charter fishing, tours, shopping and more. You'll be able to see more and do more in Rhode Island this summer. PS., check out our free events and special offers, for budget-friendly Rhode Island fun!
