While Rhode Island is the smallest state in the nation, there is no shortage of great food. It's known as the Ocean State, and after spending a few days exploring it, I can say it definitely lives up to its name! There's a never ending supply of fresh lobster, succulent clams, and much more. The selection from under the sea is out of this world, but that's not all Rhode Island has to offer. There are plenty of other interesting foods, like pizza bread and coffee milk. Take a dip into the Ocean State's fare and check out some of my favorites here.
Welcome to Week Two of PetSugar's Out and About travel feature where we'll visit the state of Rhode Island! Start the day by checking out the beautiful blazing red and golden amber fall foliage in the Narragansett Bay area before you (and your pooch) hop on the Block Island Ferry at Point Judith, just south of Narragansett. Leashed pets are allowed to make the hour-long trip on the traditional ferry, while small, contained pets can take the traditional or hi-speed ferry to this island.
Once there, wander the 20-plus miles of beaches (many open year-round) as well as The Greenway, a 30-plus mile network of trails – there are outdoorsy options for the true hikers, the leisurely strollers, as well as boats to rent and explore the 300-plus freshwater ponds. If you visit soon, you can see (and pup can bark at) the flocks of birds traveling along the Atlantic Flyway – often as many as 150 different species pass overhead!
