The Renaissance City

Providence has undergone a major upgrade in recent years, transforming from a rough-around-the-edges industrial city into an epicenter of culture.
On the 17th (Mon), admire the majestic nature at Colt State Park and then learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at North Attleboro World War I Memorial Park. Here are some ideas for day two: experience rural life at Wright's Dairy Farm and Bakery and then identify plant and animal life at Broadmoor Wildlife Sanctuary.
