Rhode Island’s most famous mollusk, the quahog, is a clam, not an oyster, but the state’s aquaculture offerings include off-the-boat oysters down in Point Judith and lots of great restaurants where you can sample oysters harvested locally and from the premier beds all along the eastern seaboard.

The new Rhode Island Oyster Trail is a handy guide to the places where you can shuck and slurp oysters in the Ocean State, including Newport’s Midtown Oyster Bar and Matunuck Oyster Bar in South County, among others. The trail is debuting just in time for the first annual Newport Oyster Festival on Bowen’s Wharf this weekend (tickets here), which will feature live music, shucking contests, and oysters from 13 of the state’s 45 oyster farms.
