Fodor's Review

Named for a Baptist minister who was one of Providence's first settlers, this main artery in the Fox Point district is home to antiques stores, art galleries, and trendy caf├ęs. It also hosts the Coffee Exchange, one of the area's most popular gathering spots. Once a working-class Portuguese neighborhood, the Wickenden Street area has seen steady gentrification over the years. But Our Lady of the Rosary Church on Traverse Street still conducts two Sunday morning Masses

in Portuguese.
