Welcome to the 2019 Best of Rhode Island® Editor’s Picks

Our annual Best of Rhode Island issue celebrates the newcomers to our beloved Ocean State, along with tried and true hometown faves. Each year, we comb through Rhody’s food, health and wellness, shopping and entertainment scenes. This year, we indulged in everything from outrageous milkshakes to bungee cord fitness, with a little bit of everything else in between.
