Suzanne was amazing! I utilized the layaway service and it was a breeze. Ring made its way to Texas and was even more gorgeous in person."

Beautiful Beaches and Lakes

3. Narragansett Beach

This sandy beach is a popular spot for locals and visitors alike. A beach proposal, especially during a less crowded time, can be incredibly romantic. Instead of asking this ultimate question verbally, make a visual proposal by spelling out “Will You Marry Me?” in a unique way.


4. Block Island

A short ferry ride from the mainland, Block Island boasts beautiful beaches, rolling hills, and seaside cliffs, offering many idyllic spots for a proposal.


Outdoor Locations to Propose in Rhode Island

Rhode Island is full of romantic gardens, farms, and beaches. These are some especially romantic locations for a proposal on a romantic walk, viewing waterfalls or enjoying a glass of wine or champagne in a secluded spot for the perfect proposal.

8. Prospect Terrace Park, Providence

This park provides a stunning view of downtown Providence and the State House. A proposal here can be particularly beautiful at sunset or during a clear night with the city lights twinkling.
