Rhode IslandCooking Vacations, Foodie Tours, Culinary Getaways

Visitors searching for new culinary experiences will find Rhode Island to be a foodie's paradise. With the Atlantic Ocean in our back yard, fresh seafood is the staple presented in an abundance of traditional New England fare and unique, local specialties. The influence of Rhode Island's diverse multicultural base has been tremendous. But don't expect to find just the traditional menu. The state's ethnic influence is readily translated into its diverse menu of food offerings. Italian, French, Portuguese, and Near Eastern and Asian foods mixed and mingled in delightful ways sure to entice any palate. It is not surprising that a vacation in Rhode Island is always in good taste.
