Providence has undergone a major upgrade in recent years, transforming from a rough-around-the-edges industrial city into an epicenter of culture.
Bring the kids along to Plymouth Rock and Mayflower II. Venture out of the city with trips to New Bedford Whaling Museum (in New Bedford), Old Sturbridge Village (in Sturbridge) and Plymouth (Brewster Gardens, Jenney Museum, & more). Pack the 28th (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Edaville Family Theme Park. There's still lots to do: stroll through Roger Williams Park Zoo, explore the striking landscape at Purgatory Chasm State Reservation, meet the residents at Southwick's Zoo, and admire the natural beauty at Tower Hill Botanic Garden.
