Map & Directions

The Westport Wanderings tour will start in Dartmouth, MA, and take us through the beautiful countryside of Westport, MA, and Little Compton, RI. We will meet at 10 AM in a parking lot adjacent to a McDonald's in Dartmouth, and plan to shove off at 10:30.

Our stops will include a beautiful view of the Sakonnet River, a brief visit to Westport Rivers Winery, Buzzards Bay Brewing, and Gray's Ice Cream! Rather than finish the tour at a restaurant, we will have opportunities to snack and dine along the way.

There will be a food truck at the Winery for a quick snack, as well as a food truck at the brewery. Our stay at the brewery will be longer than at the Winery, giving us time to relax. There are picnic tables at the brewery, so please feel free to pack a picnic lunch or plan to visit the food truck.

The last leg of this tour will bring us to the famous Gray's Ice Cream shop, so make sure you leave some room for a wonderful treat. Gray's has been making ice cream since 1923 and is open 365 days a year!

This last visit will wrap up the tour and send us on our way home. Gray's is approximately 15 minutes from Rt. 24 in Fall River.

Please contact John DeWaele (dewaelejpd@gmail.com or 401-742-6660) with any questions and to let us know you will be attending!Tiny Quadrifoglio
