Rhode Island trip

Jump to last reply

Recently returned from a trip to RI. Spent a day in Providence, one in Newport, and one on Block Island. Had a fantastic time, especially in Newport and BI.

I must say that Providence was a bit of a let-down. Although there are definitely great things to see there (State House, downcity architecture and riverfronts, Mile of History, Federal Hill), these didn't take more than an early day to tour. It was a Saturday and almost everything downtown (shops, restaurants, etc.) was closed. Wickenden Street was nothing more than perhaps a couple trendy coffee shops. Providence Place was lively but really just another mall. We were left in the afternoon with nothing much to do. Is there something we missed there? =)
