April school vacation week is here and Newport and its surrounding coastal areas are the perfect places for family-friendly fun all week long. Head over to Norman Bird Sanctuary for self-guided scavenger hunt bingo, hop aboard a Daffodil Days scenic bay cruise, or make your way to Audubon Nature Center in Bristol for a week-long roster of hands-on activities. From museums and tours to special events, it's about to be the best spring break ever.
When you're ready, we can't wait to welcome you back to The Classic Coast. Rest assured, the safety and well-being of both visitors and locals remains our top priority. The mask mandate requiring face coverings in Rhode Island has been lifted, however local businesses may ask you to wear a mask when visiting their establishments. Please be prepared for individual business mask policies. Additionally, shops, attractions and tours are monitoring the number of guests at any given time and may ask you to socially distance to enter.
All we ask when you land on these shores is that you play your part in keeping everyone safe. Please be kind, adhere to guidelines and maintain social distancing.
