Where can you have an outdoor outing in Rhode Island?

For informal picnics, Goddard Park in East Greenwich is a nice choice -- so is Fort Adams in Newport (though smaller). In Bristol, Colt State Park is big.

You can also hold picnics at Roger Williams Park in Providence.

For something more formal, you might want to check out Newport Yachting Center, Eisenhower House or Belle Mer in Newport. Mount Hope Farm is another formal outdoor venue in Bristol.
