Northern Rhode Island Near or at Fall Foliage Peak

Article and photo by Eric H.

Northern Rhode Island currently offers many areas of peak fall foliage. One of New England's more underrated travel destinations, northern Rhode Island has many roadside farm stands and small restaurants, scenic rural views and historic mill towns and cities within the Blackstone Valley.

We recently drove through the Cumberland, RI, area, where the leaves around the Cumberland Reservoir area were spectacular!

One great way to leaf peep northern Rhode Island (and bordering Connecticut) is through the Blackstone Valley Fall Foliage and Shopping Train Excursion to Putnam, CT, departing on Sat., Oct. 25, 2008, at 9 a.m. from the Ann and Hope parking lot in Cumberland, RI. More information of the train ride can be viewed here, including ways to purchase tickets.

For more information on the Blackstone Valley, read a previous post at the weekly New England Travel Vacation and Gazette at or the Blackstone Valley Tourism Council.
