Despite the fact that it’s not technically an island and that it’s the United State’s smallest state, Rhode Island packs a hefty punch. It lays claim to over 400 miles of coastlines, idyllic colonial towns, berry farms, vineyards, and some of the countries best museums. Feel free to get luxurious at its coastal resorts or spend some time in the quaint towns with working-class roots. Regardless of what’s on your itinerary, there’s more than enough to keep you entertained in Rhode Island.
Providences WaterFire is considered one of the top events in the country -- and it’s exactly what you’re imagining. Fire tenders sail down the river and light more than 80 floating fires along the way in what’s known as a multi-sensory exhibit.
Aside from festivals, Rhode Island beaches beckon. Head east and sprawl out on some of the east coast’s most pristine beaches. Nature lovers will want to take a stroll along Newport Cliffs, visit the Roger Williams Park Zoo, or even the International Tennis Hall of Fame (hey, the lawns are nice).
Other than that, you owe a visit to the Newport Mansions, which are spectacular seaside behemoths that once housed industry magnates like J.P. Morgan and Cornelius Vanderbilt, and visit to the historic carousels, and the Newport Storm Brewery.
In order to soak up the beaches, nature, and pretty greenery, try to visit Rhode Island around spring, summer, or fall.
