Today's post about one of my favorite scenic road trips in Rhode Island has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are, as always mine alone.
Being a stay at home/work mom means that I, obviously, spend a lot of time at home. Somedays I feel like the soundtrack of my life should begin with Etta James singing Don't Get Around Much Anymore.
But when cabin fever strikes, or my kids are having a no-nap day, I have begun a new tradition. I take the family on a Rhode Island Road Trip.
Growing up, my family didn't have a lot of extra money to spare. Birthdays were frugal, big nights out for us meant we could go to a local pizza house, get a big pie and play a few songs on the jukebox. So quite frequently, on Sunday afternoons, my parents would take us on a road trip.
We would pack up in our station wagon or minivan, take a few snacks and drinks for the ride, and go explore parts of our state. Believe you me, the Ocean State has some gorgeous drives.
So I wanted to take you on one of my favorite Rhode Island car rides that I've been doing recently. It is pretty anytime of the year, but I prefer Spring, Summer or Fall, so you can roll down your windows and breathe in all of the different scents.
