Big-Time Adventure Awaits In Rhode Island

The Breakers Mansion in Rhode Island

Tiny Rhode Island offers a rich history, a heaping dose of culture, bright cities, a green rolling countryside, and a gorgeous Atlantic Ocean coastline marked by wind-blown beaches, wildlife refuges, and trendy beach towns.

As one of the original 13 colonies, Rhode Island presents a wealth of historic attractions. Stroll through opulent mansions like The Breakers, which was built in the late 1800s for the Vanderbilts, relax at Blithewold Mansion and Gardens, a historic estate with ocean views, or enjoy the sunset at Beavertail Lighthouse, which was built in 1856 and marks the southern tip of the state.

Bustling Providence is enjoying a resurgence and is chock full of upscale restaurants, historic sites, vast green waterfront parks, and museum-studded neighborhoods. Visitors swoon for Newport, with

its yacht-filled harbor, and historic Woonsocket, which has 37 properties on the National Register of Historic Places.

Rhode Island’s green countryside is a beautiful natural destination. Set out on hiking trails in Exeter or Glocester or enjoy stunning fall foliage at Tillinghast Pont and Wolf Hill Forest Preserve. Ready for the beach? The state is not just one island – it’s mainland plus dozens of islands, some off the coast with others in Narragansett Bay. In all, the Ocean State has 400 miles of coastline, and you will find rocky headlands and wide expanses of golden sands. All over the state you will find wildlife refuges, from Ninigret National Wildlife Refuge along the coast to Block Island National Wildlife Refuge in the Atlanta Ocean and Fort Wildlife Refuge near the Massachusetts border. These reserves shelter foxes, coyotes, fisher cats, minks, and more than 400 species of birds who either make the state their home of call here on migrations.

The state’s diverse coast shelters some truly beautiful towns which are perfect for a relaxing getaway or an exciting weekend. Jamestown has amazing restaurants and a beautiful small-town vibe. Narragansett is the quintessential New England beach town, with inspiring views and a great stretch of sand. Tiny Little Compton is stuffed with vintage shops and its own vineyard. And bucolic North Kingstown has great beachside charm and a wonderful historic village center bursting with boutiques, local shops, and stunning harbors.

No matter what your desire, Rhode Island offers plenty to see. Pack your bags, your binoculars, your beach shorts, and your desire for great food and come see all the Ocean State has to offer.
