4 Freshwater Beaches In Rhode Island That’ll Make You Feel Like You’re At The Ocean

Rhode Island is known as the Ocean State, and for good reason… the ocean beaches here are truly second to none. However, you don’t have to be planted a few feet from the Atlantic to have a great beach day. Our state also has plenty of freshwater beaches that often feel like the ocean itself. These are a few of our favorites.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
