Beyond Rhode Island

 

Maine Lobster Festival

Roger Williams is located in the heart of New England, a region renowned for its rich and diverse history, culture and all-seasons beauty. If you feel like venturing outside of Rhode Island, the nation’s smallest state, it doesn’t take long to get there. The major historical, cultural and athletic attractions of Boston lie just an hour north, and New York City is only three hours south.

Take a short drive east and you’ll find yourself among the magnificent sand bluffs and beaches of Cape Cod, stretching from Hyannis to Provincetown; or onboard a ferry to the nearby islands of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. Head west and you’ll be among the blue-green mountains of The Berkshires, home of acclaimed music, dance and art festivals such as Tanglewood. Just across the border in Connecticut are the renowned Mystic Seaport and Aquarium, as well as the entertainment and gaming attractions of Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods. Within easy reach to the north is Maine’s vast and spectacular rocky coastline, dotted with lighthouses, islands and estuaries, summer lobster bakes, and the shopping Mecca that’s grown up around L.L. Bean in Freeport. New Hampshire and Vermont both offer rural getaways and imposing mountains with great hiking, world-class ski resorts and other exciting activities.
