As much as I would love to be optimistic about New England’s endless snowfall, I cannot wait for the warmer weather to come around.
The Secret Garden Tour has announced the dates for its 2015 Spring and Fall self-guided walking tours of nearly a dozen of the most beautiful gardens located in historic Newport, Rhode Island.
In August 2014, Conde Nast Traveler named Newport, Rhode Island “one of the best walking cities in the U.S.” and specifically mentioned the June Secret Garden Tour through the city’s historic Point section as one of the highlights.
Tickets are now available for the 2015 Spring and Fall Tours and can be purchased in advance online for a discounted rate of $20. New this year, group rates are also available for four or more persons with additional discounts available.
Since 1984, the organizers and supporters of The Secret Garden Tour have been dedicated to enhancing art education and cultural programs in Aquidneck Island’s Public Schools, funding dozens of programs in music, theater and fine arts for local schoolchildren. To date, The Secret Garden Tour has given more than $1 million to Aquidneck Island students in public schools for art, music, theater and other cultural programming.
