Roger Williams Park Zoo
We have a great zoo close by. And the park in general is great for relaxing, jogging, walking.
You can go for a picnic, a swan ride, pet barn animals, feed the elephants, rollerblade, play tennis, just walk.
A great location to take the kids, the zoo is always hosting special events to include the Jack-o-lantern spectacular, a must see in the fall.
Great zoo, and if you're visiting in the Fall, you have to check out the Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular
Don't miss the Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular at Roger Williams Park Zoo in October.
College Arts Building
“Adjacent to Brown's campus is the RISD Museum: one of Providence's premier locations for culture, art, and design. The museum features artistic exhibits from many different periods and places. I particularly enjoy the modern art wing and the student art sections!”
“Where you can get your iPhone/Mac fix. Somewhat upscale stores, with an innovative design by architect Friedrich St. Florian, who also designed the WW2 Memorial on the National Mall in DC. ”
“If you want to celebrate, you cannot go wrong at Los Andes! This is the best restaurant in RI, and everybody knows it--so you should call for a reservation. Indoor and outdoor seating, fresh and innovative contemporary Peruvian/Bolivian inspired cuisine, excellent wine list, and live music sometimes too. You can also grab a seat at the bar to eat. ”
“This Providence landmark restaurant has an elegant atmosphere overlooking the Providence River in downtown Providence. Although more open and less intimate than some restaurants, I actually like that they have more room. They have fish from all over the world and an excellent raw bar. The fixed price menu was a great bargain too. ”
