    Explore Beavertail State Park

    5.0
    Rhode Island isn't exactly on everyone's map, I've even met strangers in other parts of the U.S. who have no idea where the tiniest state in the country is. It's usually lumped in with Connecticut and Massachusetts, but for us locals from little Rhody, Rhode Island is it's own world of adventure ...

    Watch the Sunrise at Roger W. Wheeler State Beach

    We all love the time for the sun to rise and the moon to set, and we all love that time on the beach when our feet first touch the cool morning sand. Roger W. Wheeler State Beach is a great beach to catch the sunrise and it is easy to get to and easy to park. To say the least, it'll be worth waki...

    Birdwatch at Sachuest Point

    1.5 mi
    A trip to Aquidneck Island would not be complete without a quick walk around Sachuest Point.

    Hike to Long Pond & Ell Pond

    5.0
    5.7 mi
    Long & Ell Pond is a favorite hike at any time of the year, but it is not for the faint of heart (or small children)! The path immediately becomes more of a rock-scrambling adventure than a hike, but the views are so worth it.  This GPS address will lead you down a dirt road but you should ea...
