Visiting Rhode Island
Even with cold weather on the way, the Ocean State remains as active as ever. From the Providence-area suburbs of Seekonk and Warwick to the quieter town of West Greenwich, Rhode Island communities welcome winter visitors with a wealth of ways for the whole family to have fun. Special events, community festivals, holiday celebrations, and all sorts of opportunities for outdoor activities – this season there are plenty of ways to make your Rhode Island visit an unforgettable experience.
Get into the holiday spirit while getting active for a good cause on December 5th. The 2015 Jingle Bell Walk/Run For Arthritis sends festively dressed participants along a 5K course starting at Warwick City Park in Warwick. Slip into a Santa costume and head on down – the race starts at 11 p.m.
Stick around until the next weekend, when the Warwick Symphony Orchestra performs a host of holiday classics at St. Kevin's Church. It's a beautiful and nostalgic way to celebrate the season on December 13th.
Winter visitors won’t have a hard time finding edifying and immersive experiences in Rhode Island. Budding archaeologists and those with an interest in the mysteries of Ancient Egypt won't want to miss a chance to have Lunch with the Scholars who “Uncovered Ancient Egypt" at the Haffenreffer Museum at Manning Hall, on the Brown University campus in Providence. The short, hour-long, lunchtime talks with esteemed experts are held at noon on December 2nd and February 17th.
Seekonk visitors aren't far from Newport and a variety of things to see and do. Make a day trip out of a Newport visit, or embark on a scenic driving tour along the Maritime Trail. Attractions like the Gilded Age-era Newport Mansions certainly make for interesting highlights along the way.
For foodies visiting this February, the 28th Annual Newport Winter Festival is not to be missed. Spanning 10 days, February 12th through 21st, the 2016 Newport Winter Festival is touted as “New England’s Largest Winter Extravaganza,” with food, festivities, music, and fun for all ages in venues across Newport.
