Rhode Island Is Home To The World’s Oldest Penny Arcade, And It’s Still Delightful

During these rather strange times, it’s easy to get lost in the memories of the good old days. Luckily Rhode Island, being one of our first states, has plenty of places that inspire nostalgia and joy. The Ocean State has quite a few claims to fame, one of which is being home to the world’s oldest penny arcade. And with any luck, we’ll all be visiting it once again next summer.

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/

Do your summer plans tend to include a trip to Spring Lake Beach and this charming penny arcade?
