Rhode Island Tourism

Historic buildings, a religious haven, renowned figures from early American history—this is only a part of Rhode Island’s draw. If you love soaking up the sun as you hear the waves crash along the shore, then Rhode Island’s 400+ miles of shoreline offers plenty of opportunities to kick back and relax. Do you love performance arts? Then see what’s playing at Colonial Theatre (Westerly), 2nd Story Theatre (Warren), Mill River Player (Central Fall) or the YMA Arts and Cultural Canter (Providence) to name a few. Looking for a Rhode Island vacation that the whole family can enjoy? Why not spend a days in East Bay. Here you will find outdoor fun like bicycling, hiking and kayaking, as well as shopping resources of every kind and assorted museums.

Rhode Island, although the smallest state, is quite big on fun. Whether quietly watching a sunset or sunrise, shopping, swimming, sunbathing or sliding down a waterslide—you can find whatever it is that helps you unwind. So, grab your comfy clothes and your camera and come to Rhode Island!

Don't forget about other New England states worth visiting too. One of our favorites is Maine and with our Maine Tourism guide you'll find the best places to visit and the top things to see. Our guides are simple on purpose.
