Every year, visitors flock from neighboring states to come and view the gorgeous landscapes produced by the Fall season in New England. Whether it’s an afternoon of apple picking, hay rides around the pumpkin patch, or scenic drives through the countryside, Autumn in Rhode Island offers a special experience for everyone.
This year, our agents did a terrific job of encapsulating the season with each and every entry that was submitted to our 2018 Fall Photo Contest. Thank you to all of those who took time out of their busy daily schedules to participate. Without the submissions from our agents and the votes from all of our friends on Facebook, this contest would not be possible.
After enjoying the process of looking over all the wonderful photos that were entered into the contest, we were faced with the unenviable task of narrowing the field down to six finalists. From there, we turned things over to our loyal group of followers on Facebook to select their favorite photo and decide our winner.
It is my pleasure to announce that the winner of the 2018 RPL Fall Photo Contest is RPL Barrington Sales Associate, Eddie Rayden with his shot of Bullock’s Cove in Riverside. Eddie’s photo beautifully captured a bevy of swans swimming in the sparkling waters while surrounded by the glowing fall foliage. The photo received a total of 75 votes, finishing 20 votes ahead of the next closest competitor. This was Eddie’s first time entering the contest, and with the win, he will be rewarded with a free property video and website package compliments of the RPL Marketing Department. Congratulations Eddie!

We want to know!
Autumn is such a beautiful time of year in Rhode Island. The climate transitions from hot summer days to cool comfortable nights, perfect for wearing a light sweater. Rhode Island is home to some of the most stunning foliage in New England. The classic New England structural design, landscape and coastline make for a fantastic foliage drive.
There are fun activities to be had across the entire state. There is apple picking, pumpkin carving, festivals and more!
So, we’re taking a Poll. What is your favorite Fall activity?
