‘Tis the season to do everything wintery! Rhode Island is full of holiday and winter activities for all ages, no matter what part of the state you live in. Here are a few of our favorite holiday activities we’d like to share.



See a Christmas Carol

Seeing Charles Dickens’ classic Christmas play, A Christmas Carol, has been a tradition for many Rhode Islanders for nearly four decades. This Trinity Rep show is great for all ages, but the ghosts may be a little scary for some children. You can see the show until December 31 at Trinity Repertory Company in Providence.

The Granite Theatre & The Renaissance City Theatre Company in Westerly also has their own interpretation of the play, as well as Stadium Theater in Woonsocket. Check out their websites for more information.


Spend an Evening with Donner and Blitzen

Donner and Blitzen are together again for their annual variety act! Head over to the The Contemporary Theater Company for a hilarious, jolly good time. Shows run until December 23, check the website for performance dates and to buy tickets.



Go Ice Skating

There are now two Alex and Ani Skating rinks in Rhode Island — one in Providence, the other in a waterfront location in Downtown Newport. Both the Providence and Newport rinks are open seven days a week, just check out the websites before heading over to see the hours.


Visit Santa

Hop on the Polar Express and head on over to the North Pole! The Blackstone Valley Polar Express is a three-hour event that includes a 90-minute train ride with storytelling, sing-a-longs, games, and yummy goodies. Santa even delivers gifts to every child! The train is located at 1 Depot Square in Woonsocket. Make sure to get tickets ahead of time!

Go Out For a Date Night

On December 18, head over to Blithewold Mansion for a Horse-Drawn Holiday Carriage Ride & Holiday Photo Shoot. Enjoy some old-fashioned holiday fun on a horse-drawn carriage ride down their wooded Lover’s Lane, then across the Great Lawn. Register early, it’s first come first serve!

At the Towers in Narragansett on December 22, spend a night enjoying festive music, caroling, and cocktails. Buy your tickets for the Christmas Cocktail Cabaret here.

Last Thursday, December 8, Residential Properties Ltd held their annual Relocation Awards Banquet at the Radisson Hotel in Warwick. The event was created to recognize RPL relocation trained sales associates for their professionalism and dedication to their customers — individuals that are relocating in or out of the state.

Elizabeth Messier, Vice President of Corporate and Relocation Services, says, “Relocating to a new location can be a highly stressful event for individuals and families and our agents go the extra mile for our clients – consistently exceeding the expectations of our transferees.”

While months of planning go into the banquet, the event is designed to be fun – with lots of surprises for the agents. This year’s theme was The Magic of You and began with a performance from magician Lon Cerel. To thank our agents for a job well done, there were several raffle prizes in addition to the awards ceremony. Below you’ll find the complete list of the award winners and raffle prizes.

Thank you to all of our agents!

Now that the votes are in and the totals have been tallied, we’re proud to announce the results of the 2016 RPL Fall Photo Contest. Before we do, I’d like to thank everyone who made this season’s contest such a success, including each of our finalists, everyone who entered a submission, and of course all of our friends on Facebook who took the time to submit a vote and share the contest with those they know. With your help, this year’s fall contest reached over 8,000 people on Facebook, receiving 50 shares and a total of 246 votes.

Our photo contests have become increasingly competitive, and this fall season’s was no different. Each of our finalists received at least 30 votes, while a total of just six votes separated our top two entries. Ultimately, after a busy weekend of votes, one photo emerged as the clear champion.

We’re proud to announce that the winner of the 2016 RPL Fall Photo Contest is Providence River Sunset by Cumberland Sales Associate Michael Plante. Michael’s colorful shot captured the vibrant reds, yellows, and blues of a perfect fall sunset reflecting off the waters of the Providence River. After jumping out to an early lead, Michael’s photo withstood a late weekend push from the other competitors to capture the contest with a total of 73 votes. Congratulations to Michael who will receive a free property video and website as his contest prize.

View the full contest results below.
