Seniors Traveling to Rhode Island

http://seniorcitizen.travel/types-of-vacationtrave...

I rarely focus in on a county or country per se, but this exception pays off for senior visitors in Rhode Island. South County's vacation appeal reaches to charming villages, rolling countryside, historic sites and hundreds of acres of woodlands.

Senior travelers will enjoy unlimited opportunities for hiking, canoeing, cycling, shopping and touring. History and culture are evident throughout South County as well.

Historic inns and bed & breakfast establishments offer senior visitors the opportunity to personally experience Colonial- and Victorian-era South County.

Regional history thrives at local museums like South County Museum, Gilbert Stuart Birthplace and Smith Castle, while summer stock theatre productions delight audiences at charming Theatre by the Sea.

South County is long recognized as a cultural hotspot with its thriving arts scene. The numerous art galleries alone are a major draw for many tourists. Parks and recreation areas dot the landscape.

The Matunuk Oyster Bar would be high on my choices for a dining experience, learning about all the work the owner goes through to put oysters on the table in his Bar.

South County's reputation for coastal beauty precedes itself. With 100 miles of breathtaking coastline, the wide variety of beaches are the jewels in Southern Rhode Island's crown.From tame, foot high, family friendly waves to pristine stretches of sand, South County is an ideal spot for seniors seeking rejuvenation.

Historic downtown Westerly is another major draw along the coast. I would put the South County History Center on my bucket list as it is located at the Old Washington County Jail ( 1858-1861) in historic Kingston Village.

TripAdvisor offers 184 things for senior visitors to see and do. TripAdvisor further notes that South County is one of New England's favorite vacation spots.

Whether you're a thrill-seeker looking for adventure or you want a peaceful setting where you can simply relax and unwind, South County is the perfect vacation destination.

Seniors Traveling to Rhode Island

Clear ocean waters, cool breezes and bright sunshine

The state has numerous ocean beaches with thundering surf and miles of stunning vistas. Doze off listening to the waves, take time to build an amazing sand castle, stroll the sun-speckled sand beachcombing for shells, or cast a fishing rod into the open water. The more shielded beaches of Narragansett Bay feature "breakwater" barrier protection and may be more suitable for novice swimmers, as well as featuring a more varied, fluctuating surf. Welcome to Rhode Island—not just another day at the beach.
