The popular Portsmouth labyrinth, the largest maze in
Rhode Island, will once again get curious maze-goers lost
when it opens to the public on September 1. Though the
correct pathways can be walked in under 30 minutes, most

hour to travel through more than two miles of twists and
turns, 2 bridges and 85 decision points.

WHEN: Opening Friday, Sept. 1. Opening hours are
Fridays at 4 p.m., Saturdays at 10 a.m., and Sundays at 11
a.m. Closes daily at dusk.

He also loves to cook crazy New Orleans dishes for his wife of 25 years, Michelle, and their two sons, Jake and Max.
