  1. This would have come in handy on our mini-vaca last weekend to RI. We drove past the Topiary attraction sign - I was afraid of getting The Shining flashbacks. We spent the afternoon in Newport instead pretending to be rich.

  2. Nice list! I didn't scruitize it too much but Atlantic Beach Club in in Misquamicut (Westerly) not Woonsocket.

    I'm going to have to go through and see which ones I can count as DONE!
