As you travel on the 45-minute ride from Providence to Newport, your host will take you through beautiful towns along our East Bay. Along the way, he will tell you the story of the places you are passing through. During the first half of the tour, you will be on the tour bus as your guide tells you all about the places you are seeing, introduces you to many sights you may want to explore on your own, and gives you lots of opportunities to get out and take pictures. During the second half of the tour, which is free time on your own, your tour bus will become a hop on/hop off shuttle to move you around to the areas you would like to spend more time in. This relaxing day gives you the best of both worlds - a guided tour and free time.

Providence by the Book: A Literary Walking Tour

Providence by the Book: A Literary Walking Tour

"...the slanting sunlight touches the Market House and the ancient hill roofs and belfries with gold, and throws magic around the dreaming wharves...After a long look he would grow almost dizzy with a poet's love for the sight..." H.P. Lovecraft- one of the most significant supernatural horror fiction authors of the 20th century- wrote these words about his hometown of Providence. This tour discovers the author's traumatic upbringing, racism, and favorite haunts; guests also meet some of the fictional characters that Lovecraft wrote into the city's fabric. But Lovecraft isn't the only famous author that ambled the city's centuries-old sidewalks: Sarah Helen Whitman, the poet who was briefly engaged to Edgar Allan Poe, also called the Creative Capital home. This tour explores her life and relives the couple's whirlwind- and doomed- romance.
