With the start of school being pushed back, there's a little extra time to enjoy the final stretch of summer (and figure out how the heck to keep the kids occupied for a few more weeks). Rhode Island has no shortage of things to do within its borders, so we pulled together some suggestions for planning a daylong adventure or a quick local getaway. Totally your call on whether you bring the kiddos or not.

Please check individual websites before heading out, as many of these attractions require some sort of pre-registration before visiting.
