  1. Your reply was very helpful…after the hockey tournament we were going to spend a few nights in Jamestown maybe Wyndham Bay Voyage Inn and then follow your route north because we have been to Narragansett many times and really weren’t interested in the beach….maybe stop in Newport for a night…..any B&B’s or restaurants you could recommend? And will the foliage to your knowledge be peaking there and north of there?

  2. My husband and I are looking for a few stops for foliage coming from NJ the weekend of Oct 23,24,25 and making our first stop in Providence, RI to see my grandson’s hockey tournament and then we would like to see any foliage that might be left anywhere in New England…..any suggestions????
    Thanking you in advance, Miriam and George Wilson

    • I would say Providence is a good start and then head south to little Compton and Tiverton. Follow it west along the seashore. If you travel with a good map you will find Meeting house lane in Compton and if you take that into the common, you will find the old town hall and a church and cemetery and across the street from the church is C.R Wilbur general Merchandise (general store) and that is a great place to explore.

      Follow 77 north to Tiverton and west to pick up 114 south and then 136 west to 1A and then follow that south or north. To the north you can find nature preserves and south will take you to Narragansett and you can explore a whole day there. Look for conservation lands and you can even do some beach time. There are historical societies that may still have some mansion tours if so inclined…

      I hope this gives you some ideas.
