Revisit your younger days when you hopped in the car, started the engine and drove off in search of something fun. We have three unique options for you, depending on how far you want to drive. Visit one, or visit all of them. How far will you go?

In our first venture out, we will take a trip a short distance to Mount Hope Farm. With its 127 acres of fields, forests, flower gardens and beautiful shoreline, is truly one of Rhode Island's must-stop spots.

The farm has a colorful history as it has passed through several prominent owners over the centuries, but is now open to the public under the ownership of the Mt. Hope Farm Trust. Visitors can stay in the historic Governor Bradford Inn and explore some of the scenic waterfront grounds which played host to the last battle of King Philip's War in the late 1600s.

Mount Hope Farm is open for the public to enjoy seven days a week from dawn until dusk.
