New England - Rhode Island (Chapter)
This is the Rhode Island chapter from Lonely Planet's New England guidebook.
Rhode Island might only take 45 minutes to drive across but it packs over 400 miles of coastline into its tiny boundaries. Quite a lot of this coastline takes the form of white sandy beaches, arguably the finest places for ocean swimming in the Northeast.
