Winter can be harsh in the Northeast, but that doesn’t mean you have to stay confined to your home until spring. What you need is a reliable vehicle to get around, and Christy’s Car & Truck Rental has a fully-stocked fleet of rentals. An affordable, well-maintained vehicle rental can get you to any destination with peace of mind at this time of the year. Let’s look at some winter events and activities around Rhode Island that you can travel to in one of our vehicles.
1. Lumina: A Month-Long Light Festival
Visit this light festival in downtown Providence from January 19-February 20 to experience a contemporary ice palace with 25 towering prisms by Quartier des Spectacles International. The festival will offer performances, engaging programs, and enchanting tours for visitors.
2. Yawgoo Valley Ski Area & Water Park
If you want to brave the frigid temperatures for some exhilarating winter sports, you should plan a trip to Rhode Island’s only ski area any time until March. The ski and snowboarding area is open daily, and the snow tubing park is open on the weekends. There are 36 acres of skiable terrain at Yawgoo!
3. Ice Skating at BankNewport City Center
From now until March, you can enjoy ice skating at the BankNewport City Center. But that’s not all! There’s also bumper car fun available on the rink, where drivers can traverse the ice in cars that move forward, backward, and sideways.
4. 33rd Annual Fakes and Forgeries
Visit this unique art exhibition at Spring Bull Gallery from January 20 to March 3 to see copies of the masters’ works. Fakes and Forgeries is a popular Newport winter tradition where artists submit either a reproduction or a parody of a great work of art.
