Traveling to Providence Rhode Island
One of Providence’s most popular events is WaterFire, a multi-sensory art installation, highlighted by a series of bonfires installed on the three rivers of downtown Providence.
For family fun visit the award-winning Roger Williams Park Zoo, which offers an up-close and educational look at animals from around the world. Or enjoy an afternoon of ice skating in the middle of downtown Providence at the Bank of America City Center, featuring more ice than Rockefeller Center.
Check out the brand new, interactive exhibits at the Providence Children’s Museum and the Rhode Island School of Design Museum of Art, which houses more than 80,000 works of art, ranging from French Impressionist paintings to contemporary multimedia art.
For something completely unique, head to the Culinary Arts Museum at Johnson & Wales University, which features a vast collection of culinary artifacts.
Take in a show at the Tony Award-winning Trinity Repertory Company or the Providence Performing Arts Center, a world-class facility hosting touring Broadway shows, plays and concerts.
