Rhode Island is not just for the summer. Events, fairs, festivals, and concerts are taking place year round. For people who have not spent a lot of time in the Ocean State, the first images that one thinks of may be of Newport’s fabulous Gilded-Age mansions, 12-meter yachting, and its famed jazz, folk, and classical music festivals.
Rhode Island has a host of well known attractions that are sure to please the whole family. With its historic place in American History, its architectural treasures, a legendary coastline, and urban life, Rhode Island packs more per square mile than most states many times its size. Tennis enthusiasts and players alike should not miss Newport, which is home to the International Tennis Hall of Fame and considering its size, Rhode Island also has an inordinate number of golf courses for all skill levels.
One may discover the Blackstone River Valley National Heritage Corridor, America’s birthplace of the Industrial Revolution or take the ferry to Block Island, protected by lighthouses, spectacular bluffs, and surrounded by scenic roads and winding paths. And then there is the state capital, Providence. It is the only city in the United States to be named one of the “Top Ten Up-and-Coming Travel Destinations” by the Wall Street Journal. With a thriving arts community, vibrant neighborhoods and a renowned restaurant scene, Providence is the perfect city to visit.
This only skims the surface of what there is to see and do in Rhode Island.
