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 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/
