Rhode Island/Rockland, Maine

Filed under: Uncategorized — karenhammond @ 8:14 pm

Chapter 3 of Backroads & Byways of New England: Drives, Day Trips & Weekend Excursions focuses on Rhode Island’s East Bay and Sakonnet Peninsula, a lovely place for a summer jaunt. Gardeners will love the beautiful Blithewold Mansion and Arboretum in the town of Bristol, while the Herreshoff Marine Museum attracts sailing aficionados from all over the world.  Tour the Rhode Island coastline  and enjoy some “stuffies” (delicious stuffed clams) while you visit our smallest state.

 Rockland, Maine, also shouldn’t be missed if you’re touring New England. Take a windjammer cruise, enjoy fabulous cuisine at Primo, one of the country’s top restaurants situated in breathtaking surroundings, and stay overnight at one of Rockland’s four historic inns. Ferries leave from downtown Rockland to some of Maine’s intriguing islands and their year-round fishing communities.
