Spring has sprung on the Open Rhode
Who doesn’t love a good road trip? Here in RI, we prefer a good Rhode trip. And we think you should hit the Open Rhode and explore the Ocean State this spring. We're trading our boots and coats for jackets and wellies (and in some cases flip-flops), and we'd love to share our springtime events with you!
Shake off the winter blues by walking and hiking our parks and trails abloom with flowers and fresh green growth. Cycle miles of off-road bike paths to the cheerful rhythm of birdsong, or fill your lungs with fresh sea air and feed your soul with the soothing sound of waves on our empty beaches (they officially open on Memorial Day weekend, but until then you can enjoy them with your leashed dog). For indoor or rainy day fun (those new flowers need water, after all) explore our historic homes and Gilded Age mansions (as in HBO's The Gilded Age!), as well as our fascinating history and art museums.
As things warm-up, you'll enjoy fantastic outdoor dining with waterfront or cityscape views, as well as outdoor beer gardens at our craft breweries. There's shopping and strolling our charming villages, and loads of fun for the littles at our zoo, playgrounds, carousels, and nature centers. There are also walking tours, boat tours, food tours, bus tours, garden tours, and more.
That's a lot to choose from, but you only need to answer one question: What will your spring thing be on the Open Rhode?
