Rhode Island in November for 4 days? or Washington DC?

Jump to last reply

We are thinking of a last minute break and drive to Providence and Newport , RI, for 4 days this weekend. We live in upstate NY Hudson Valley. Can anyone recommend whether this is a worthwhile trip? We have never visited Providence, though we stopped in Newport once several years ago during the spring. What highlights are there in Providence? Does the weather in November make these destinations undesirable? Are Newport mansions open in November?

In the alternative, we have considered 4 days in Washington DC, and we are curious in hearing from fodorites familiar with Rhode Island whether Washington DC would be the better choice in November.
