The White Horse Tavern
The First State takes a lot of pride in having the “oldest” version of everything, and the White Horse, which was built in 1673, takes the title for taverns, and it serves exceptional, locally foraged cuisine to this day.
Flying Horse Carousel
America’s oldest continuously operating carousel was built in 1867; it is still open for business during certain periods throughout the spring and summer, though it does close for routine maintenance. Check the schedule before you go.
Rhode Island’s most famous “summer cottage” is a 70-room mansion that used to belong to the Vanderbilts, erstwhile kings of American opulence. You can’t stay, but you can visit.
