Plan A Visit To Stepstone Falls, Rhode Island’s Beautifully Blue Waterfall

Rhode Island’s waterfalls are not towering, loud cascades, but that doesn’t make them any less beautiful. Stepstone Falls, which is actually a series of waterfalls in the Arcadia Management Area, is an absolutely gorgeous place where the falls happen to be natural, a rarity in the Ocean State. Plan a visit this summer and see for yourself..
