Things to Do in Rhode Island with Kids

We’ve got something for everyone. Looking for some fun in the sun? Take the whole family to any of Rhode Island’s beautiful beaches where you can jump right in and make a splash. When you work up an appetite, there are endless possibilities for restaurants to suit every taste and budget.  Encourage the little ones to learn and explore at the Providence Children’s Museum or the 430-acre Roger Williams Park & Zoo.  Let loose at the Biomes Marine Biology Center where you can get up close and personal with the largest collection of New England marine life in the world.  The Save the Bay Exploration Center and Aquarium offers lighthouse and seal tours suitable for all ages.
