Things to Do in Rhode Island

This is the smallest state. The capital, Providence, showcases founder Rogers Williams and attractions - John Brown’s museum, the Rhode Island School of Design and architecture along Benefit Street, plus Waterplace Park, downtown along the river. At Bristol, tour the Blithewold Mansion, plus its gardens and at Pawtucket see Slater Mill, the birthplace of America’s Industrial Revolution. On the coast, Newport has a long list of things to do: mansions on Bellevue Avenue, the International Tennis Hall of Fame, Cliff Walk, the Museum of Yachting, Touro Synagogue and sailing. Take a ferry to Block Island to explore the village and nature. Expect to find lobster on the menu at local restaurants. Stay in hotels, B&Bs and inns.

Blithewold Mansion, Gardens and Arboretum

101 Ferry Road
Bristol, Rhode Island
In 1976, a remaining member of the Van Wickle family donated Blithewold Mansion, Gardens and Arboretum to what is now Preserve Rhode Island, so the general public could enjoy it.

While the original 1896 home was destroyed in a fire, much of its contents - antiques and artwork - were saved and are now on display in the 45-room mansion built in 1907.
