Welcome back, northern Rhode Island!
Northern Rhode Island is back in business after a long and difficult year, and as your favorite local restaurant, watering hole and gym works on getting things back to normal, it’s time to be grateful for the community’s resilience.
In that spirit, we’ve published a guide to summer 2021 that aims to celebrate that resilience and has two goals: support local businesses that have struggled through the pandemic, and help locals get back on track as they finally begin to venture out.
In the guide, you’ll find the best of what our small northern towns have to offer through the summer months, from activities and live entertainment venues, to outdoor dining and ways to cool down.
We’ve gathered the details of your summer punch list so you don’t have to, including features on some lesser known options for seniors, and the best spots to grab a cone. In the back, check out pages dedicated to summer health and beauty, with success stories from local businesses helping clients to look and feel their best after a year of stress and isolation.
The guide includes addresses and phone numbers of many local establishments, now honored survivors of the year that brought the world to a halt, in hopes to make it that much easier for you to visit.
It’s our contribution to the effort to help make sure these local businesses stay up and running, and keep the northern Rhode Island economy vibrant for years to come. We hope you enjoy it and use it, as we celebrate the better days ahead.
Editor’s note: The above content is the first of many installments of our Guide to Summer 2021. A printable pdf of the complete guide is available here, and can be accessed through a tab on the home screen, where it will remain through August.
