New Bedford, Fall River, +/- Rhode Island?

Jump to last reply

My parents will be visiting in a couple of weeks. I'm thinking of taking them on a day trip to New Bedford.

We plan to visit the New Bedford NHP (http://www.nps.gov/nebe/index.htm ), as well as the Whaling museum. I suppose this will take up a few hours?

I'm debating if it's worthwhile to stop in Fall River? I have never ever been there, and I can't tell what's there to see except for Battleship Cove. But the Battleship Cove website is quite annoying (seems like it's geared for teenage boys), is it worthwhile to visit?

If we don't visit Battleship Cove, should be bother stopping in Fall River at all? Is it a "cute" town or not? I've heard that there's a large Portugese population there, so perhaps we can stop there for a Portugese lunch? Any suggestions for places to eat (preferably $10-15 a plate).

Where else can we visit that's nearby? We've been to Plymouth, Providence, Newport. We are not into shopping. They like historic sites and gardens.

[ I'm also interested in visiting the Slater Mill in Pawtucket; unfortunately, it's only open on weekends in April, which won't coincide with my parents' visit.]
