5 Easy-Access Rhode Island Waterfalls That Are Perfect For A Summer Adventure

Summer is beach season here in the Ocean State, but those who call Rhode Island home know that it’s about so much more. Rhode Island’s waterfalls aren’t the towering cascades you’ll find in other states, but each one comes with its own unique history, and they often make for some great day trips. These are five of our favorites — and each one is easily accessible.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
