Southern New England Discovery Tours
Your Backyard Just Got Bigger!
During the first full week of May we
celebrate National Travel & Tourism Week in a big and
exciting way. For eight years this kick-off event was
known as “Tour Rhode Island.” Since partnering last year
with neighbors in Connecticut and Massachusetts, we have
taken a new
name, Southern New England Discovery Tours, or “SoNew
Tours,” for short.
This event is now in its tenth year
– and we have you, our loyal tour members, sponsors and
partners to thank for it. In the Tourism Industry, YOU
are the best promoters of what makes
Southern New England such a terrific place to visit ,
live in and enjoy.
SoNew Discovery Tours is an
adventure, a re-discovery of our “bigger backyard,” the
its natural landscapes, and the excitement and
importance of the historic and cultural heritage
shared throughout Southern New England. We are often
surprised by the treasures hidden in
picturesque places across the region, in this bigger
backyard of ours.
You are part of SoNew Discovery
Tours. By signing on you become a valuable ambassador,
taking in new knowledge and giving your unique
perspective on these treasures. It’s our purpose
and mission to spread the word about where we live and
its numberless treasures. You are part of that, whether
by bringing a friend, by “word-of-mouth,” or by way of
Social Media. We encourage you to take photos or video
clips of you and your friends, and once
you do, be sure to share them with us!
We thank you heartily for your
patronage, good company and good will.
