Visiting Rhode Island

Once West Kingston celebrates harvest time at the Johnny Cake Festival, you know fall in Rhode Island is under way. The 2012 Brown University football season ends November 17, with the Brown Bears battling the Lions. And before you know it, Rhode Island’s Blackstone Valley Polar Express is departing from Woonsockets Station One Depot, and Santa arrives at Roger Williams Park Zoo. By now, the Providence Bruins have launched their 2012-2013 season at the Dunk, and Brown Bears Basketball is in full swing at the Pizzitola Sports Center. Beautiful colors, crisp fall air, lots of activities and fun – this is Rhode Island.

In the northern reaches of Rhode Island’s Narragansett Bay, Warwick is a quintessential southern New England city and the second largest in Rhode Island. Home of Thayer Warburton Arena, Warwick has been chosen as the site of the 2013 New England Regional Figure Skating Championships. The Warwick Figure Skaters host the event at Thayer Arena and are making good use of the ice this fall and winter for practice sessions.

Twenty-miles west of Warwick via Interstate 95, travelers pass through the small Kent County enclave of West Greenwich. A rural Rhode Island town, West Greenwich also prospers as a hub for companies located along the I-95 corridor. An oasis of pristine outdoor New England 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.

The University of Rhode Island W. Alton Hones Campus, located in West Greenwich, features the Environmental Education Center, and the Whispering Pines Conference Center. URI’s Environmental Education Center offers the popular February School Vacation Camp, offering a winter outdoor adventure experience for youth ages 9 through 13. Whispering Pines Conference Center offers a spectacular New England setting for conferences, weddings and team building.

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 3rd 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.
