The 10 best things to do in Rhode Island

Rhode Island may be the smallest state in the US, but it offers more than enough experiences to be worthy of a visit. Known as the Ocean State, it features miles of sandy shoreline and an assortment of inviting seaside towns. “Little Rhody” is also home to two of New England’s most decorated schools - Brown University and the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD). You can experience the luxe life while wandering through grand mansions in Newport, or get cultured by the arts scene in Providence. Then take your pick of beaches, where you can shop, dine on fresh seafood, and relax on the water.   Done something on this list and loved it?
