You don’t have to look far to find ways for your family to enjoy the summer days.  Rhode Island has a network of bike paths and nature trails that can keep a family busy and happy every day of the summer.
There are several bike paths in the Ocean State. The RI DOT has a page devoted to them! You can travel along rivers, beside the bay, and through cities. Be sure to go over safety practices with the kids! Bike paths will cross streets and roads. Check out the Ride Smart section of The League of American Bicyclists for tips. They have a lot of useful information on everything from safety to maintenance to how to shift.
Nature trails can provide a walk or a good, long hike. You decide! Enjoy leisurely walks and beautiful views of coastal trails or choose to hike a path nearby where eagles, falcons, and wildlife live.
Visit garden sites: Green Animals in Portsmouth, RI, is the oldest topiary garden in the US.  Figures of animals and birds are shaped from privet, yew, and boxwood. Or spend a day at Roger Williams Park in Providence, designed and developed in the late 1800s. The park has lovely, mature gardens, including a Japanese garden and rose gardens.
