Tired of the same old tourist traps? Take the road less traveled and discover the hidden attractions, unique finds, and unusual locales other guidebooks just don’t offer. Off the Beaten Path® features the things you’d want to see—if only you knew about them! From the best in local dining to quirky cultural tidbits, you’ll say over and over again: “I didn’t know that!”


Discover a different side of the Ocean State. Learn about all things “uke” at the Ukelele Hall of Fame Museum in Cranston; take in a ball game and soak up the old-time atmosphere at charming Cardines Field in Newport; or stroll through Charlestown’s Fantastic Umbrella Factory shops, a funky collection of 1960s-style boutiques where a sign by the garden states: Clothing Optional; Shoes Required. So if you’ve “been there, done that” one too many times, get off the main road and venture Off the Beaten Path.
