Battleship Cove is perhaps Fall River's greatest tourist success story. It attracts umpety-ump tourists every year and is one helluva lot more deserving of interest than the story of how two wealthy middle aged people named Borden were hacked to death with an axe and how their daughter was tried for their murder. (That's Fall River's other great tourism success story whether it should be or not.) Battleship Cove is by some measure "the largest collection of naval ships" somewhere ... maybe the world. Find their website and let them tell you all about it or just grab your sneakers come for a look-see or to find out what men and machine oil smell like after sixty years. It's well worth it.
Narragansett Bay dominates the geography of the tiny state of Rhode Island, extending 25 miles northwards and inland from the Atlantic Ocean right into the heart of its major cities. It is fed by the watersheds of 3 major rivers: the Blackstone, the Taunton and the Pawtuxet. Narragansett Bay defines the region's culture, its history, sense of place and quality of life. The cities of Providence, Newport, Fall River, Warwick and Newport all owe their start to the bay and the opportunities it provided for water power, commercial growth and transportation. Once badly polluted, the Narragansett Bay has made a tremendous comeback in the last 3 decades as communities all around the bay have revitalized their connection to the bay and taken steps to curb human impact. Aerial Vr plans a series of panoramas intended to capture the area's unique natural beauty, both from its surface and from the air as well as the vitality and uniqueness of its communities.
