Signs of Hope Are Everywhere in Rhode Island

Hope is our state motto and our new mantra. It’s in everything we do. Taste it in exquisite dishes made by people delighted to be in the kitchen again. See it in vibrant murals and sculptures that dot our downtown. Feel it in meeting facilities that are safe and sparkling and ready to go. It’s time to travel. It’s time to meet. It’s time to have hope.

Rhode Island is ready to welcome your group.
