We Dare You To Take This Road Trip To Rhode Island’s Most Abandoned Places
Living in one in the nation’s smallest and second most densely populated states in the nation has ensured a few things. Your first thought might be traffic, and while that’s accurate, it’s also meant that few abandoned places remain. While we are fortunate to have some gorgeous parks and state land scattered across the region, any unused space is quickly used up and transformed into things like shopping centers and apartment complexes. Somehow a few abandoned places remain that stand as reminders of what life was once like. This rhody road trip puts some of the most fascinating abandoned attractions in state together for a fun day of exploration!
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
