Why So Many Love To Visit Rhode Island

Rhode Island has captivated the historian and the beach enthusiast for going on several generations. It was founded in 1636, before the United States of America was even established as a sovereign nation. This means that it is full of historical landmarks, remnants of our past and the birth of our great nation. People who visit will often stay in Ocean House, a resort that was established in 1868, merging the intellectual stimulation that comes with historical investigation with a day at the beach.

The Cliff Walk

It will usually take a few hours to get through the long hike. The Cliff Walk is one of the most important attractions of Rhode Island. It features several of the natural delights that come with the region, demonstrated as you walk across the shoreline. You will get to view relics of American history such as architecture. Architecture has served as an expression of culture and the development of the western world. There are also geological phenomena throughout the rocky shoreline.
