These 10 Rhode Island Sites Shaped American History And You Need To Visit

When it comes to colonial history, Rhode Island sometimes gets overshadowed by its neighbor to the north (we won’t name names). Nevertheless, as one of the original 13 colonies, Little Rhody has played an oversized role in American history. A visit to each of these 10 historical sites – some of them well known, some less so – will perfectly demonstrate why the Ocean State is so significant.

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
