Rhode Island is a quintessential New England summer destination, and Newport is at its hub. Home to spectacular coastal scenery, historic architecture, and a thriving and lively waterfront downtown, Newport is perfect for outdoor summer adventures or just relaxing.
Experience all that Rhode Island (and other Southern New England destinations) have to offer through the incredible field trips offered before and after NMEA. Enjoy a classic New England seafood luncheon at the highly rated Matunuck Oyster Bar and learn about local aquaculture efforts during a special tour of this unique shellfish farm in Potter’s Pond. Through NMEA field trips, participants can also explore lighthouses and enjoy the seashore, scuba dive in one of the most frequented dive sites in southern New England (Ft. Wetherill), learn the basics of sea kayaking, or fish for cod, sea bass, tautog, fluke, bluefish, or even tuna in the waters off Block Island.
The May 26 deadline for field trip pre-registration is quickly approaching and space is limited- be sure to reserve your spot on one of these fantastic trips ASAP!
