Providence Place Mall
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.
Sometimes you just need the Mall. Providence Place is a good one! Tons of shops, mediocre food, Dave & Busters (arcade, bar, restaurant), & the movie theater.
They have everything you need. This is one of the largest malls in all of New England.
“Super fun zoo for the kiddos. There is a water-splash area and lots of hands-on exhibits in the zoo, plus a large park outside the zoo. (Seasonal) It is about 57 minutes away, but worth the drive for a day-trip.”
