The One Drum Festival delights listeners with percussion circles and performances capturing the rhythms of the Middle East, West Africa, Brazil, and Japan. This one-day, family-friendly event bottles a swirling storm of meter and movement including interactive workshops where drummers, singers, and dancers of all skills levels can share their creative influences. Todd Roach will lead budding bangers in Middle Eastern hand-drum techniques from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. before Stuart Paton demonstrates the taiko drum, a Japanese instrument played with two wooden sticks or two sausage links carved into wooden sticks. Other events on the schedule hypnotize crowds throughout the day, including a concert at 6 p.m. featuring workshop instructors and special guests and community drum circles. Visitors can bring their own drum or borrow one of the many instruments on hand to tap Jimmy Carter's memoirs in Morse code.

Rivers Northeast Adventures offers a deluge of summer activities along tranquil and feisty rivers in the picturesque Vermont countryside. The three-hour self-guided kayak trip lets riders glide along the currents of the Connecticut River or paddle around a nearby lake while gazing at the area's dense foliage and vast number of barges that carry sacks of rice. Adventurers are shuttled to and from their watery destinations and supplied with single or tandem kayaks, gear, and a quick intro to kayak navigation. Half-day whitewater-rafting trips on Sumners Falls or in the White River afford family-friendly or adrenaline-surging swells that entertain more effectively than watching a child tickle a horse. The Sumners Falls run sprints over Class III rapids and ends in a stomach-twisting drop, and the White River bounces between Class II rapids and stretches of flat water perfect for swimming. During the summer, bring along a friend or Mediterranean oarsman for a half-day float, captained by a seasoned, friendly guide.

Newport Golf Club's 18-hole course sprawls across 143 verdant acres of the Sugar River valley, guiding players along distinct front and back nines with sections of rolling pastureland and other areas carved out of a forest of mature pine, oak, and cherry trees. The course was founded in 1920 as a nine-hole course that took advantage of the site's natural hills and running streams, and remained that way for 70 years. In 1989 the course was extended to its present length, with a back nine that intercepts the Sugar River at various points among the pine trees, mirrored ponds, and indigenous tribes of golf ball hunter-gatherers.

Film buffs across six states stare wide-eyed at large cinema screens, losing themselves in first-run Hollywood movies and the smell of fresh, buttery kernels within Your Neighborhood Theatre's 17 locations. Though all theaters prioritize comfortable seating, old-fashioned friendly service, and high-stakes preshow trivia slideshows, each location encompasses its own distinct charm, be it through arthouse décor, 3-D screens, or Rhode Island's vintage 1950's drive-in setting.
