This Rhode Island Mansion Has Transformed Into A Christmas Wonderland

If you live in Rhode Island, there’s a good chance you’ve toured Blithewold – after all, this garden estate is one of the most famous sites in the Ocean State. You probably think of it as a summer spot, though – and if you’ve never visited at Christmas you’re missing out. Sure, the flowers in the gardens are no longer in bloom, but the estate absolutely comes to life around the holidays, and your whole family is sure to love a visit.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

You can find Blithewold at 101 Ferry Road (Rt. 114), Bristol, Rhode Island 02809.
