Fall Guide

Fall Guide

From the harvest to Halloween happenings, there's a lot to love about autumn in Rhode Island.

Posted

If the summer proves to visitors and tourists that the Ocean State is the best place you could ever want to live, the fall is our time to really enjoy it. Beaches are free, restaurant patios have room for us, warm days give way to pleasantly cool nights and farms are overflowing with delicious local bounty. September and October really are the months with the most to love: cozy fall sweaters, haunted houses, pumpkin-flavored everything.

Our second annual Hey Rhody Fall Guide gives you hundreds of ways to make the most of autumn. Read on, and then fall in love with the season yourself.
