Top 10 Shopping in Rhode Island, United States

February 2, 2022 Alice Mieles

With the perfect combination of great seaside views, colorful local culture, and endless family activities, Rhode Island is a big vacation destination in a small package. Whether you are into art and culture, beautiful seaside sights, or great family-friendly activities, there is sure to be something for you in Rhode Island. If you're staying in Newport, try a breathtaking tour of the harbor in the Schooner Madeleine, or enjoy a bit of history at Fort Adams State Park. The Newport mansions are one of the most popular attractions around, and the nearby Cliff Walk is a great place for a hike. Narragansett is home to the lovely Narragansett Town Beach and Point Judith Lighthouse, and if you hop on the Block Island Ferry you are only a short trip away from Block Island, where you can enjoy the sights of the Mohegan Bluffs or party it up at Capt. Nick's Rock and Roll Bar. Take a drive up to Providence for some great shopping at Providence Place Mall and to visit the unforgettable Roger Williams Park Zoo.

Reviewed By barryn680 - Coventry, United States

yes,this a true Art location inside an old historic courthouse made of Stone. They have a lot of different great events including many music events that are just outstanding. A lot of the events are posted outside by the entrance. Or just go inside and get an up to date list of What is going on. Tickets are reasonable prices and they have a limited amount of refreshments. It funds other art and education programs which we should all keep going anyway.A great cause to keep the arts in the area going ...You can go online to see what events are going on or are coming in the near future.We even years ago went to a New Years event here and it was a lot of fun.
