Welcome to Rhode Island
Rhode Island is not just a state; it is a
vital part of America’s heritage. Some of
the most important events in the history of
the nation took place right on these lands.
The historical value of Rhode Island makes
this small state invaluable to the New
England region’s tourism industry.
Instead of spending your vacation running
around through the bars and beaches, take
the time to walk the lands that the founding
fathers walked upon hundreds of years
before. Truly appreciate the experience of
knowing that you’re standing in areas that
lead to the formation of this beautiful
country of America. As you trek through
Rhode Island you will come upon these
highlighted points of interest all along
your travels. There are over 50 different
National Historic Landmarks located
throughout this beautiful state.
Before you start to enjoy all of the other
exciting things that Rhode Island has to
offer, appreciate the history that is all
around you, for it is some of the last
preserved historical areas in the nation.
After you have had your fill of site seeing,
there are a million other things to do while
you’re vacationing. Rhode Island is known
for being the “Ocean State” due to its
location along the eastern sea border. The
peninsula here is known for its award
winning fishing spots, as well as its little
hidden nooks for afternoon swimming.
If you’re not the saltwater type, there are
still swimming and fishing locations
available for your pleasure. Rhode Island
has rivers and lakes running from north to
south and east to west. These freshwater
locations offer you the same amenities as
the state’s peninsula region with the added
benefit of fresh running water.
The Ocean State isn’t all just about site
seeing and fishing either. Everybody knows
that the people in New England are famous
for their ability to produce some of the
best tasting ales around. You can venture
into one of the many pubs and bars located
throughout the state and enjoy a few good
drinks with an accommodating array of
locals. Hospitality is one of the things
that the residents in Rhode Island are known
for. It won’t be long before you’re fitting
in with the local pub crowd enjoying stories
they have to share about the surrounding
You will have educational filled days and
friendly warm nights starting from the
minute you arrive in Rhode Island.
Everything around here runs at its own pace,
as you will quickly see. Transportation has
been swapped out for bicycles; small quaint
inns take the place of huge corporate
hotels; fishing and site seeing have
replaced the wild party beaches.
Rhode Island is so much more then a vacation
getaway, it is a passageway to the past!
