Rhode Island School of Design Museum of Art

This innovative and internationally renowned museum showcases more than 80,000 works of art from Paul Revere's silver and caricatures of 18th century Europe, to French Impressionists and the avant-garde works of recent alumni. A 12th-century Japanese Buddha has its own room with benches for meditating.

RISD Museum continues to be top-notch! we were there Jan 2015 and much of the displays delighted me-again, or newly! Beautiful furniture design-a cherry music stand as eye-catching as a sculpture--some classics from mid-century 1900's still sharp and stand-out well-designed---but I also want to compliment the guides this time. We were given suggestions and offered assistance to see more of what we were obviously enjoying by several guides-and helped navigating some of the more confusing halls and connections between areas. All was done pleasantly and so helpfully-I was really impressed and grateful!

McCoy Stadium

A popular baseball field (home of the Pawtucket Red Sox) for minor-league games that draws a huge crowd.

Reviewed By apatriot73 - Massachusetts

I have been coming here for years and years. It is a great place for watching AAA Baseball . It is much better in many ways than seeing MLB first hand. The prices for everything are drastically cheaper, less crowds, better parking-free if you get there early, including handicapped and easier traffic.

I would recommend going to MLB at least once in a lifetime though. Many stars come from AAA. The players usually like giving autographs.

Lastly, McCoy has events sometimes, like walking the field, fireworks and more.

Professor Chef is a culinary gem of North Providence. Small, intimate classes. Great food. Phil and Malinda are an incredible wealth of knowledge and are prepared to answer questions as they cook and demonstrate techniques.

Johnston War Memorial Park

Reviewed By Debra T - Cranston, Rhode Island

Monday afternoon August 8, 2016 Louis and I went to Johnston War Memorial Park.
Address: 1583 Hartford Avenue Johnston, Rhode Island 02919.
This park is a memorial for may wars.
It has: three walking trails, baseball fields, tennis courts, a place for fishing, and basketball courts.
A park for all age groups.
There is a playground for the children.
A beautiful pond with geese around.
People can sit on the benches.
It wasn't too dirty, but some parks are cleaner than others are.
A bridge to walk on.
During the fall season there is an Apple Festival.
A great park for walking to get plenty of exercise.
Louis and I had a very nice relaxing and peaceful afternoon at the park, but the weather was hot.
Thank You.

I have been coming here for years and I marvel at the interior every time I walk through the doors. I have sat at many different locations here and I've always have a good view of the stage. My favorite seats are front row of the balcony.

Brown University

University located in Providence.

Reviewed By tranzactnow - Perth, Western Australia

Brown University is made up of a number of architecturally very interesting buildings to view. We visited the University on a very cold winter morning after heavy snow storms and the place was a million post card pictures. Located very close to the CBD of providence if you are looking for picture shots take a stroll around Brown.

State House

This imposing marble building houses King Charles' 1663 charter of the Rhode Island colony.

Reviewed By tranzactnow - Perth, Western Australia

If you are visiting Providence and have even the slightest interest in grand buildings then you should not miss State House. Free entry during the week will allow you to see a most spectacular building with what I was told was the fourth highest dome of any building in the USA. Contained within the building are the legislative chambers of Rhode Is. The building is quite spectacular and well worth seeing.

Roger Williams Park Zoo

Located amid 40 acres of beautiful woodlands, the Roger Williams Park Zoo provides visitors the opportunity to see animals from all over the globe – some more than a million years old. Naturalistic surroundings are home to more than 100 species of animals including a Komodo dragon, as well as zebras, red pandas, African elephants, Masai giraffes, snow leopards, bears, flamingoes, sloths, and more! Kids from two to 102 have the opportunity to feed giraffes and harbor seals, as well as an array of farmyard animals. For something slightly out of the ordinary, visit our new Explore and Soar area offering an exhilarating zip ride, a train excursion through the woodlands, and camel rides. The Zoo is an accredited member of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), and is home to many endangered species. As a result, the Zoo participates in cooperative conservation and breeding programs to help ensure the future survival of many endangered species.

This is one of our favorite family day trips in New England. Beautiful grounds surrounding the zoo and within. Exhibits for the animals are very large and acclimated to what each animal needs. Staff is extremely friendly and there is something for everyone. Feeding the giraffes is a must stop and do!

Benefit Street

A mile of history is packed onto this cobblestone street lined with historic buildings. The Nightingale-Brown House, built in 1792, home to five generations of the Nicholas Brown Family (of Brown University) is a "must see" on the block.

Reviewed By BeverlyWriter - Vermont

Always delightful daytime or night: a feast for the eyeballs. I wandered around at 1 am when I couldn't sleep and it was spooky, I wandered around during the day and it was delightful.
