Things to do in Rhode Island
We've got it going on in Rhode Island. From beaches, 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 exploring the parks & trails, 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, glass float hunting, tours, shopping and more. And, of course, you must eat and drink! From the freshest seafood to authentic Italian, from amazing vegan to beloved Rhody classics (including clamcakes and chowder, calamari, weiners, and coffee milk), you will not go home hungry. And our breweries, wineries, distilleries, coffee and tea shops, and Del's frozen lemonade will make quenching your thirst a delight. Bottom line: you'll be able to see more and do more in Rhode Island this summer.
