Although there's no reason why a visitor couldn't do this, I wrote this tip for my fellow Rhode Islanders -- some of whom still consider that a trip from Providence County to Washington County requires an overnight stay! Every year, a consortium of tourism groups puts together a tour of the state on the first Saturday in May. "Tour Rhode Island: There's No Place Like Home" is so popular that it generally sells out weeks in advance. However, last minute bookers may be able to snag a seat. All tours begin at the Community College of Rhode Island in Warwick. The cost for the full day is $30 for adults, $20 for children twelve and younger, and includes a bus tour of scenic attractions as well as lunch. If you've missed it for 2007, put a sticky note on your calendar to make reservations in 2008!

Address: 400 East Avenue, Warwick, RI
Directions: If traveling North on Route 95: Take Exit 11 (295). Then take Exit 1 onto Route 113 west; continue straight to campus entrance
Phone: 1-877-874-7845 (select prompt 1)
