The Longest Swinging Bridge In Rhode Island Can Be Found In Newport And The Views Are Unbeatable

Rhode Island is called the Ocean State, but it may as well be the Bridge State. Our bridges keep us connected to other counties, and they also happen to be gorgeous. The longest one of all is, without a doubt, the iconic Claiborne Pell Bridge, otherwise known as the Newport Bridge. The longest structure in New England is both eye-catching and functional.

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/
