Why go on a Rhode Island Tour?

Rhode Island has two cities worth noting: Newport and Providence. Relax on the white, sandy beaches, engage in family-friendly fun, and discover the artistic and cultural heritage on a Rhode Island Tour.  Newport, founded in 1639, is a lovely sea-side town known as the “Yachting Capital of the East.”  You may walk along the waterfront and stop by the wonderful boutiques and galleries, visit St. Mary’s Church where President Kennedy was married, or stroll through the Cliff Walk trail along the shore line for striking views of the harbour and mansions.  Newport’s biggest attraction are the historic mansions that began as summer cottages in the 1800s and have earned the area its architectural prominence.  Drive past the mansion-lined Bellevue Avenue to see the likes of the Astor’s Beechwood Mansion and Belcourt Castle.  You may even take a tour of The Breakers, the 70-room Italian palace belonging to the Vanderbilt family who gained their wealth through shipping and railroads in the 19th century.  The college town of Providence has fantastic shopping, restaurants, bars, museums, and theatres.  Be sure to indulge in delicious cuisine at one of the many award-winning restaurants on “The Hill.”

When is the best time to go?

April through October is a good time to visit Rhode Island.  The summer welcomes high profile music festivals and beach and boating weather.  Temperatures average 23°C in the summer and -2°C in the winter, and tropical storms and heavy snowfall are common.  Because Rhode Island has a humid climate in the summer and winter temperatures drop fairly low, late spring and early fall are also nice times to visit.  The city of Providence will be vibrant during the back-to-school season, and the colourful foliage will make for a nice backdrop.
