    The island of Jamestown was really off the beaten path until a bridge was built fromthe mainland and to Newport. Now it is more accessible to people traveling through and over the bridges.

    The Mansions in Newport

    by lionreb Updated May 26, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Don't get me wrong, i love the mansions in Newport. The only problem, for the Tourist, is that there are too many of them. You cannot see them all in one day, nor would you want to. Too many mansions in one day can give you a headache. So see two or three at the very most and choose wisely. I recommend the Marble House, since it is really spectacular and it reminds me of Cinderella at the ball.

    Fun Alternatives: There are lovely sites out of doors to enjoy in Newport and to balance the indoor experiences. I reccommend the cliff walk or parts of it, a walk down Thames street, and
    the Ocean Drive is not to be missed.

    The advantages of the Minor Leagues

    by lionreb Written Jun 7, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    LIke Baseball? Well, there is plenty of it in the parks of RI. Only thing is, Boston is where you have to go if you want to watch the Major Leagues. Of course, we are closer to New York than Boston is, so some people make the effort to go there to catch the Yankees or the Mets. Most Rhode Islanders keep it regional and root for the Red Sox. Nowadays, with the price of tickets being so high and the technicalities of commuting so complicated, there is a more local alternative
    and it's much cheaper too. The AAA Farm team of the Boston Red Sox is based in Pawtucket ,RI and who knows, you might get to see one of the Red Sox stars in rehab. on their way back up!
