Top Things to Do In Rhode Island

What Rhode Island lacks in size it makes up for in spirit.

Rhode Island, the smallest state in the United States, only takes 45 minutes to drive across. While Rhode Island is tiny, it certainly packs a punch. Hundreds of miles of coastline, seaside mansions and a cultural and artistic vibe make it one of the top Northeast destinations. 

1. Gaming Fun

Twin River Casino is the state’s largest gaming venue. They have plenty of live table games and machines with over 4,500 video slot machines available. What really stands out is their 29,000 square-foot event center, where guests can see free live music, headlining entertainment, and more.  

Guests can also live it up at Newport Grand Slots. With plenty of slots, challenges, shows and dining options, this is a great playground for adults. There’s always something going on, win big at trivia nights, sing karaoke, or catch a concert and see amazing cover bands.

2. Visit Block Island

Block Island is a splash of paradise just off the coast of Rhode Island. They have miles and miles of secluded and beautiful beaches, all free to the public. There are lots of unique shops and exquisite restaurants, making this tiny island a fantastic retreat from reality.

Getting to Block Island can also be a relaxing and enjoyable experience. The Block Island Ferry service runs out of Fall River, MA, Newport and Pt. Judith, RI. The ferry gets you there quickly, but still gives you time to enjoy beautiful ocean views and the tang of the fresh, salty air.

Recommended Fun!
