The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Go Artisanal in Bristol, Rhode Island


4. Insider’s Tip

Blithewold Mansion offers small classes that most visitors don't know about.  

For most visitors, Blithewold Mansion is just another impressive summer estate leftover from another era, but locals know there’s more to enjoy than a stroll through the rose garden and tour of the 45-room mansion. Skip those and instead opt for a wide range of small classes, held in the mansion and its grounds, that focus on art, gardening, cocktails, and even yoga. Call as soon as possible to see if any classes are scheduled during your trip, since they sell out early.
