From the deep red of the Black Tupelo tree to the bright yellows of the Witch-Hazel trees, the area comes alive in fall. Consider visiting Fort Ward Park, Monticello Park or Jones Point Park to catch a glimpse of the beautiful fall foliage.
  2. Cruise on the Providence – The wind might be a little chillier, but the views are just as beautiful. Experience the celebrity tall ship that appeared in Pirates of the Caribbean.
