Special Trip for In-Laws to RI and Martha's Vineyard or Nantucket

Jump to last reply

My in-laws will be visiting the beginning of June. They are both in their 80s and my mother-in-law needs someone to hold her hand and steady her as she walks. They haven't visited us in several years and this may be their last visit, so I want it to be special and memorable. My husband mentioned the mansions in Newport, RI and that really interested them. We planned to take them to Newport June 5-6. However, I see that there is an International Film Festival that week. Should we move the dates to 4-5 to avoid crowds? Any suggestions for places to stay? Cost is not a major concern, but I would like to keep it about $200/couple/night. They are not B&B types; at least not into canopy beds . . . Father-in-law likes small meals/snacks and coffee. Both always want breakfast to start the day.

We plan to do 1-2 mansions - one each day - Breakers and maybe the Elms depending on their stamina. Visit the Cliff Walk, but probably won't go very far; more for the scenic view. Drive along Ocean Ave. for views. Do some limited shopping and enjoy meals together. Any other suggestions?

Since they are from the mid-west, we thought we would take them to Martha's Vineyard or Nantucket for 2-3 days. We have never been to MV and the last time we visited Nantucket was about 20 years ago. In-laws have been to lower- and mid-cape before. Which island would you recommend?
