Don’t Let Summer Pass Without Visiting These 5 Rhode Island Islands

Have you ever tried to explain Rhode Island to someone who has never been? It’s technically not an island… but it has its own islands… oh, and its official name is Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, which is pretty funny since the smallest U.S. state has the longest official name.

But there’s nothing funny about our beautiful little islands, which, when social distancing is practiced, can still be explored safely this summer. When you have a day or two off to disconnect from life and explore, check out one of these beauties.

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:
