Providence

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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Providence: Hyannis Whale Watcher Cruises (in Barnstable), Plymouth (Plimoth Patuxet & Plymouth Rock) and Sandwich (Sandwich Glass Museum & Heritage Museums & Gardens). There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Shining Sea Bikeway and get to know the resident critters at Roger Williams Park Zoo.
