14 Reasons Why Rhode Island Is The Very Best Place To Be In The Summer
Summer is definitely the most incredible season here in Little Rhody. We wait for it all winter long and our longing for sun and fun only increases during the spring months. Now that it’s here, let’s take a look at what is so darn special about a Rhode Island summer.
1. Stunning Sunrises
Catching a quiet sunrise at the beach is one of the most awe-inspiring activities you can do in the Ocean State.
2. Providence Waterfire
This event draws visitors from all over the world and there's no doubt as to why they come to see the spectacular lights on the water.
3. Del's Lemonade
Del's Lemonade is most Rhode Islander's drink of choice to cool down in the summer because the taste is fantastic.
4. Swimming At The Beach
Our beaches are awesome. Splash around in the surf of the Atlantic to get completely refreshed.
5. Eating At Seasonal Clam Shacks
Clam cakes, lobster rolls, and stuffies are all on the menu at our favorite seasonal clam shacks. The tastes of a Rhode Island summer are absolutely worth drooling over.
6. Water Slides
Enjoy the slides at Water Wizz in Westerly. Plunging into the pool at the end of your ride is so much fun.
Sure, you can go fishing during other times of the year, but trying to land that striped bass off the shore is much more pleasant in the summertime.
8. Trips To Block Island
Summer wouldn't be complete without at least one trip to our beautiful Block Island.
Amusement rides, games of chance, and crave-worthy eats await at our summer festivals.
Whether you brave the waves yourself or pick a spot on the beach to watch the surfers, summer is the perfect season to do it.
In the Ocean State, we have plenty of wonderful campgrounds. Pitch a tent, build a fire, and roast some marshmallows for classic family fun.
12. The Flying Horse Carousel
This historical seasonal amusement is one-of-a-kind. Visit it during the summer in Watch Hill.
13. Getting Out On The Water
Boating is a popular activity in Rhode Island. After all, 33 percent of our awesome state is water.
Our sunsets are just as spectacular as our sunrises, so make sure you take in a few before the end of summer.
