Share Your Rhody Love

Rhody Love Notes is a collective mapping project established to connect communities to beloved places and spaces hidden throughout Rhode Island. By inviting the public to write, share, and explore Notes dedicated to the places they love, Rhody Love Notes seeks to inspire new perspectives on our state and foster belonging, curiosity, and local pride.

Beloved places are hidden around every corner in Rhode Island. Help us grow our map of Rhody love by writing a Love Note (or two, or three!) dedicated to a place in Little Rhody that holds a special place in your heart. Using the map below and the hashtag #rhodylovenotes on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, you can view your Love Note(s) and explore the ever-growing collection of Love Notes submitted by our community. Discover new places and welcome others to the places that are special to you.

How To Submit:

  • Pick a place or space in Rhode Island that you love. Write a Love Note to that place! Your Note could include a particular memory or story, or even just what captures your heart about the place.
  • During COVID-19, Love Notes can be dedicated to newly discovered places in our own neighborhoods, or places farther away to which we long to return.
  • Share your Love Note using the hashtag #rhodylovenotes AND tagging @doorsopenri on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter. Use a location tag to mark the place’s address. Remember to tag @doorsopenri and ensure that your post is publicly viewable, or we may not be able to view your submission due to privacy settings!
  • Or, send your Love Note to
  • When submitting, be sure to include (1) your name, (2) the name of the place, (3) its address, (4) one to three photographs, and, of course, (5) your Love Note.
  • Please only submit photographs taken by you or otherwise available in the public domain. All images hosted by Rhode Love Notes live in the public domain.
  • Love Notes can be any length, but there does need to be a Note associated with the place you submit and its photo for us to add it to our map of Rhody Love.
  • Multiple Love Notes are welcome and encouraged!
  • By sharing your Love Note, you consent to Rhody Love Notes and our partners sharing your name, Note, and included photograph(s) through our website, newsletters, and social media activities.

During the COVID-19 crisis, Doors Open RI asks our community to be safe and follow social distancing guidelines outlined by the CDC and local public health authorities. Many of our beloved places are not open at the moment and should only be visited in the future as permitted by public guidelines.
