Rhode Island Fall Foliage

Great Rhode Island Fall Attractions

Maine fall foliageGiven its geographic size, Rhode Island may be the A little brother to the other New England states, yet its population is considerably higher than is Vermont’s and it comprises some very lush history.

Both Boston and Newport, Rhode Island are my two favorite cities because of they are saturated in history, albeit much of it restored in Newport.

Doris Duke who owns Rough Point decided to restore Newport’s 18th century houses to their original conditions, furnishings included. My uncle, John Alden Lloyd Hyde, a noted antiquarian, worked closely with her to restore not only the history, but the ambiance of the times.

All of that aside, Rhode Island’s size makes it no less full of New England fall foliage attractions. There is a ski mountain in the state, but we couldn’t find a fall chairlift ride to its summit. Nonetheless, there are plenty of farms in Rhode Island lending themselves to the burgeoning, travel-sector newcomer, agritourism.

You can pick your own fruit, go on hay rides, maneuver your way through corn mazes and have a great deal of fun on Halloween night.

As with the other states in the region, there are plenty of other types of attractions here that allow you to leverage and get the most out of some super quality time with the family, spend time as a couple or even go from attraction to attraction yourself to take in the sites.

Rhode Island’s fall foliage is no less bright than is its neighbor to the north, and the seashore backdrop in Newport makes it all the more interesting.

Though it’s not listed as an attraction, we highly recommend a stroll down Cliff Walk in Newport where you can sprinkle some history into a fall foliage pilgrimage. It’s along this walk that many of the famous Newport mansions can bee seen. You can learn more about Cliff Walk on the New England Fall Foliage Rhode Island tour page.

Size aside, Rhode Island offers plenty to see and do, and although there are no great mountainous pinnacles to look down upon the color-saturated countryside, you’ll still enjoy the foliage.
