Crescent Park Looff Carousel

An 1895 carousel featuring 66 hand-carved figures.

Reviewed By ffdjp78 - Tiverton, Rhode Island

Timeless and historic. Enjoy a few rides on this 1895 carousel and try for the gold ring. This place is magical! Take a picnic lunch along and head across the street to Rose Larisa Park for an excellent water view. Or enjoy the Blount Clam Shack in the grounds near the parking lot.

This innovative and internationally renowned museum showcases more than 80,000 works of art from Paul Revere's silver and caricatures of 18th century Europe, to French Impressionists and the avant-garde works of recent alumni. A 12th-century Japanese Buddha has its own room with benches for meditating.

RISD Museum continues to be top-notch! we were there Jan 2015 and much of the displays delighted me-again, or newly! Beautiful furniture design-a cherry music stand as eye-catching as a sculpture--some classics from mid-century 1900's still sharp and stand-out well-designed---but I also want to compliment the guides this time. We were given suggestions and offered assistance to see more of what we were obviously enjoying by several guides-and helped navigating some of the more confusing halls and connections between areas. All was done pleasantly and so helpfully-I was really impressed and grateful!

Pawtuxet Village

Reviewed By rider2010CapeCoralFL - Cape Coral FL

Darling village at the head of Narragansett Bay with kayaks for rent, restaurants from simple to elegant to dine in, and a 10 minute cab ride from the airport. If you had a long layover, it's a place you could visit for lunch and be back in time for your plane!

Brown University

University located in Providence.

Reviewed By tranzactnow - Perth, Western Australia

Brown University is made up of a number of architecturally very interesting buildings to view. We visited the University on a very cold winter morning after heavy snow storms and the place was a million post card pictures. Located very close to the CBD of providence if you are looking for picture shots take a stroll around Brown.

I've been going to Morris Farms for 20 years to get fresh produce. Of all the local farm stands I've been to Morris farms consistently has the best tasting, sweetest corn on the cob I've ever found. Their tomatoes are outstanding! Can't wait for local summer sweet corn to be ready next year!

State House

This imposing marble building houses King Charles' 1663 charter of the Rhode Island colony.

Reviewed By tranzactnow - Perth, Western Australia

If you are visiting Providence and have even the slightest interest in grand buildings then you should not miss State House. Free entry during the week will allow you to see a most spectacular building with what I was told was the fourth highest dome of any building in the USA. Contained within the building are the legislative chambers of Rhode Is. The building is quite spectacular and well worth seeing.
