With all the great things to do in Rhode Island, sometimes it’s easy to forget our old favorites for family fun. Our very own Roger Williams Park Zoo is one of those gems that you should be coming back to again and again. There is so much wildlife to see it is almost impossible to get it all done in one day. This is one Wildlife Park that you need to bring your family to, or if it’s been a while, to check it out again! It’s one of the best day trips in RI you can take.
Roger Williams Park Zoo is open year-round though hours vary depending on the season. Active and retired military receive 50% off the ticket price, and you can become a member and visit the zoo for free all year. The first Saturday of the month is free to Providence residents with proof of residency as a “thank you” for their tax dollars which go to support the zoo.
What are some of the most family-friendly places in Rhode Island?
Among the most family-friendly places in Rhode Island are:
Wright’s Dairy Farm in North Smithfield. I’ve been coming here as a kid and now I bring my own kids here to see the cows, watch the cows being milked, and pick up some treats like radio bars, hermits, and coffee milk from the bakery.
Biomes Marine Biology Center in North Kingstown is somewhat small but there are so many wonderful interactive exhibits here. My nephews love this place!
