Touring lavishly decorated homes and places of business is an industry unto itself this time of year. And this weekend, Rhode Island gives you two choices to see holiday decorating at its best.

The Christmas Tour of Inns and B&Bs of Newport County will be open to the public Dec. 13 and 14 from 4-6 p.m. Tickets are $10 per person or $18 per person for both days. Call 401-847-7081 for more information, or check out their website for details.

And two, the 17th Annual Homes for the Holidays House Tour in Bristol, R.I., happens the same days from noon to 5 p.m. The tour includes several homes, including Linden Place Mansion decorated in a "Christmas Wedding" theme. Tea and light refreshments will be served as you take in its grand beauty. Call 401-253-0390, or visit online for details.
