I’ve been thinking about all the fun things RI has to offer this summer. Trying to schedule time to go to some of these events has become a daunting task. There are so many fairs, festivals, restaurants, beaches, parades, concerts, waterfires, parks etc to choose from. For anyone thinking of visiting our fair state, and for those natives looking for a little fun I hope you get some good ideas from my post.
