Ballard Park In Rhode Island Looks Like Something From Another Planet

Rhode Island’s beauty is often described as otherworldly, but our state has a few spots that really do look like they belong on another planet. Ballard Park in Newport has an especially surreal quality, being surrounded by rocks on three sides. This hidden gem is full of surprises.

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.
