Thursday, April 26th


Blithwold Mansion Daffodil DaysAll aboard for a fabulous day with PRIME TIME™ as we celebrate the arrival of spring in the ‘Biggest Little State in the Union’!

We’ll begin our day with an elegant luncheon onboard the Grand Bellevue Dinner Train. Return to the golden age of rail travel and dining in ‘Pullman style’ as you leisurely journey through the county side of Aquidneck Island while experiencing views of Narragansett Bay. Today’s meal choices are Bourbon Steak Tips, Chicken Marsala or Cod Scarpello. All meals are served with mashed potatoes, vegetables and tiramisu for dessert.

After our nostalgic luncheon, we’ll head over to Blithewold Mansion in Bristol, RI. This beautiful 33-acre estate is located on Narragansett Bay and was once the summer retreat of Augustus and Bessie Van Wickle. The property features a 45-room mansion filled with family heirlooms framed by a series of beautiful gardens that range in character from mysterious to exotic. Your guide will lead you on a 90-minute tour of the mansion and its pristine grounds as they tell the story of the Van Wickle family. As an additional bonus, April is Daffodil Days at Blithewold Mansion! An annual month-long celebration as tens of thousands of brilliant yellow daffodils trumpet the arrival of spring.
