Visiting Rhode Island | Fall 2014
Ocean State sports fans are in for an exciting fall. The 2014 Brown University football season rages on through November 17th, when the Brown Bears football team battles the Columbia University Lions at Brown Stadium, and Brown Bears basketball is in full swing at the Pizzitola Sports Center. What’s more the Providence Bruins have dropped the puck on their 2014-2015 season. See the future NHL stars in action at “the Dunk” – the Dunkin’ Donuts Center.
The quintessential southern New England city and the second largest in Rhode Island, Warwick is nestled into the northern reaches of Rhode Island’s Narragansett Bay. Families visiting enjoy open skating at Thayer/Warburton Arena, Mondays and Fridays from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Less than half an hour west of Warwick via Interstate 95, travelers pass through the Kent County community of West Greenwich. An ideal stop for fall foliage tourists traveling along the I-95 corridor, West Greenwich is boasts picturesque fall landscapes – the Big River Management Area, West Greenwich Land Trust, and W. Alton Jones Campus of the University of Rhode Island are among those that preserve nearly 50% of the open green space in West Greenwich.
Rhode Island’s coastal city of Newport is famous as a summer resort featuring tours of pristine American Gilded Age mansions, including The Breakers. Located on Aquidneck Island, Newport is an active year-round destination. Sachuest Point National Wildlife Refuge and Norman Bird Sanctuary offer spectacular fall and winter birding, as flocks move south for winter.
Visit Newport before November 9th for a tour of Rough Point, the oceanfront home of Doris Duke, and the exhibit Passport to the World: Doris Duke the International Traveler. Rough Point’s Passport to the World showcases Ms. Duke's life-long travels, along with the art and fashions collected on her adventures.
