November is a special time of year. Not only do we start moving into the holiday season, but we also still get to enjoy amazing fall weather. It's the best of both worlds! Our November events reflect this transition perfectly-we have a train ride and musical performance that both celebrate the holidays as well as fun outdoor activities that take advantage of the fall weather.


When traveling to Rhode Island this November, or any time, it can be tough choosing which of the many charming hotels, inns, and B&Bs will be your home away from home.

Harkening back to the opulent Gilded Age, this meticulous resort will make you feel just like the namesake family.

The political action network financed largely by billionaire Charles Koch [[ Coke ]] has endorsed the former South Carolina governor's bid for the White House. It's seen as a major boost to Haley's campaign as a viable Republican alternative to former President Trump.        Hunter Biden is willing to testify before Congress in the House's investigation into his actions, but only if he can do so publicly. The president's son's legal team said so in a letter to the House Oversight Committee. Hunter Biden's attorneys accused the House of using "closed-door sessions to manipulate, even distort the facts and misinform the public."        The judge in Elon Musk's lawsuit against Media Matters is recusing himself from the case.
