Although the weather may not feel like it, there is still a good month of winter left. But don’t despair! Before March 20th, get your fill of winter’s best with these fun activities in and near East Greenwich.
Yawgoo Valley in Exeter is a great skiing/snowboarding hill for beginners, but if you’re not ready to hit the slopes, their snow tubing never fails to impress.
If you want to some more serious runs near home, head for Wachusett Mountain in Princeton, Massachusetts. It can make a fun ski day out of a boring weekend for the more serious skier!
Right next to East Greenwich is a superb sledding and tubing area. The Dunes at West Greenwich, on the corner of Hopkins Hill and Division, is part of the Big River Management area. It has multiple entrances, so there are plenty of way to get there. This is a little hidden gem right in town!
Almost every Rhode Islander has been to the Alex and Ani skating rink in Providence. Lace up your skates for one last glide (or fall) across the ice this winter before they close with the warm weather.
Looking for an indoor activity? The Biomes Center in North Kingstown offers a fun and interesting trip no matter how old you are! Take a trip to see, touch, and learn about marine life in the seas surrounding Rhode Island.
Take a day trip to a museum, like the RISD Museum, Frosty Drew Observatory (my personal favorite), the Culinary Arts Museum, or the Hera Gallery. A low-key day looking at beautiful art and history can soothe the soul!
‘Escape the Room’ games are becoming ever more popular as apps and virtual reality headset games. But did you know that there is a real- life ‘escape the room’ right in East Greenwich? Located in the Hill and Harbor right next to Blu on the Water, The Riddle Room is a great place to book an adventure with friends and family!
