These 9 State Parks In Rhode Island Will Knock Your Socks Off

When thinking about Rhode Island people tend to focus on the beaches, which is understandable. The smallest state does have one of the most stunning coastlines. It is, however, surprising that our state parks aren’t discussed as often. With thousands of acres of amazing wildlife and landscapes, hundreds of unique trails, and even historic forts and lighthouses, the parks found in the Ocean State are like no other.

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:
