    hi there,

    The best place to start your Rhode Island tour is in Slater Mill in Pawtucket which is a living history museum that includes the first water-powered cotton textile mill in the United States.

    Other great attractions in Rhode Island are the elegant mansions, once disingenuously called summer "cottages," built in Newport by the wealthy elite and which are now listed on the National Register of Historic Places and are open to the public for tours, weddings, and other special events.

    Also, don't forget to visit Tiny Block Island which is only twelve miles off the mainland from Misquamicut and is a prime destination for Rhode Island vacations. It boasts two historic lighthouses, beautiful coastal hiking trails and beaches, and numerous resorts and Block Island hotels.
