Why Should You Visit Rhode Island?

April 3rd, 2013 11:02 pm

Rhode Island, a state of the United States, is a nice place to visit. Its major recreational features are the existence of a number of beaches which can be perfectly assumed from the nickname of this state, which is, ‘The Ocean State’.

Narragansett Bay, a large part of Rhode Island, is a beautiful body of water with many islands and recreational opportunities. The sand here which is known as “baby sand”, is fine and easy on the feet and comfortable to lie on for sunbathing. Another beautiful beach which is shaped rounded by the tide action over millennia is Moonstone Beach. This beach is little uncomfortable to walk for the presence of stones on the sands, but it gives a charming natural view which nicely compensate that lacking.

The wave action of the ocean beaches is also nice. There’s nothing quite like the soothing sound of the ocean as it washes in and out on a sandy shore. Add the cries of gulls and other sea birds and you’ve got nature’s own melody. Lying on a beach in Rhode Island and listening to the birds and ocean can be one of the most soothing experiences. It’s no wonder that many people go to that tiny state for rest and relaxation.

The area of Rhode Island that has the most beaches is called South County. If you want to be near many beaches and also find great restaurants with fresh seafood, that’s the best place to stay. Like the rest of the state, it isn’t big but there are motels, hotels, and bed and breakfasts right near the water. Though summer is the most popular time of year to enjoy the beaches, from June to August, other seasons offer opportunities to enjoy them as well.

Because Rhode Island is part of New England, the changing seasons offer opportunities to enjoy the spectacular colors of leaves in Autumn. Have you ever walked on a beach in late Fall or Winter? You may have miles of beach to yourself and see spectacular waves crashing on a windswept shore. After a walk on the beach in the crisp air, a bowl of seafood chowder tastes even better.

In brief, Rhode Island is a right place to visit for who want to enjoy the true ocean experience in the Ocean.
