Leave your Boston hotel and ride south in comfort to reach the rocky shores of Rhode Island.

Meander between beautiful examples of colonial-era architecture and snap photos of elegant sailing boats bobbing in the harbour.

Spread out over 13 acres (5 ha), this remarkable residence has over 70 rooms filled with opulent décor. Take a look inside before heading to your next stop.
Just a few blocks away, explore the spectacular grounds of the Elms, built in 1901 for the immensely successful coal barons of the Berwind family. Leaving the grounds, flip open your included guide book full of discounts to local restaurants and attractions.
