Trip to Providence, RI

Jump to last reply

We wil be travelling to Providence, RI over the memorial day weekend. We have 3 days there and here's a rough plan. Also, we will be travelling with 2 children, ages 1 and 5
Take a day and drive down to Newport. Visit the Breakers. Spend some time at the Cliff Walk. With 2 children, we plan to visit only 1 mansion since this is not something that will interest them. IS Breakers the best choice?
Any suggestions for cruise boat tours- short ones to get out on the water?
Also lunch place suggestions that are child friendly? How about Brick Alley? or the Sambar?

Spend a day driving down route 77. Any suggstions for lunch places on the way?

Spend a 3rd day either in Providence(maybe visit the green animals topiary garden and the Brown university area)
or another option is to visit Block Island.
Any suggestions? Also need restaurant suggestons in Providence which will be kid friendly.

Thanks in advance.
