There’s still a whole lot of summer left for family fun.

Kido Tip 1. Explore a new beach.

Everyone in a Rhode Island seems to have their favorite go-to beach. When my children were toddlers we loved Roger Wheeler State Beach for its playground, soft sand, bathrooms, showers, crafts and storytimes. As my kids get older and are more adventurous swimmers we tend to pick a beach with waves and space to boogie board. We now love Narragansett Town Beach.
