Summer in the Ocean State. Sunny beaches. Blooming hedges. Del’s lemonade at a picnic table. Has a population ever savored its warmer months more than Rhode Islanders? For three perfect months, we shed the cold and overcast, and we spend every available moment in the open air. Time is short. Life is short. You want to put those weekends to good use.
Here are 100-plus activities from across the state, all best enjoyed in the sultry mid-year. These are by no means the only activities and events you can pursue this summer, but it’s a handy smorgasbord if you’re suffering from option paralysis. And it’s a region-by-region rundown of what’s happening around the state, which empowers you to get the most bang for each summer day.
Whatever you do, have fun out there. This is Rhody’s time to shine.
