slides: 20 Things Most Rhode Islanders Have Experienced

Saturday, July 26, 2014

 

What makes Rhode Island unique? It is the places, the people and the oh so Rhode Island experiences.  We all love the #1 ranked Newport, but GoLocal decided to explore those amazingly good and bad Rhode Island experiences.

Most Rhode Islanders remember the first time they drank a Del's Lemonade or ate a really good clam cake.

The Christmas season in RI is not complete without a visit to Trinity Rep to see The Christmas Carol.

From PawSox games to the Bristol Fourth of July Parade to complaining about being stuck in traffic for five minutes, here are twenty unique experiences of native Rhode Islanders.
