Sure, it's smaller than any state you can name.
But "Little Rhodie" has it all over much bigger states when it comes to spectacularly beautiful fall foliage (take THAT, Alaska!) and doesn't mind showing it off come Autumn.
Rhode Island fall foliage hotspots include Blackstone Valley, Newport, and South County. Even urban Providence puts on a show with a stroll down Prospect Terrace -- for a sweeping view of the city skyline trimmed in fall color. And, don't forget the Providence's biggest attractions come fall with a "Waterfire" bonfire spectacular on parade downtown, promising a romantic night out on a fine fall evening.
