Rhode Island Attractions & Things to Do

Providence, Rhode Island's capital, has one of the longest and most interesting histories of any city in the United States. It was founded in the 1630s as a refuge for religious minorities by an exile from the Massachusetts Bay Colony. It later became one of the earliest industrial cities in the country and a bastion of organized crime. The city now emphasizes arts, culture and education, with lots of related things to do and see. Just south of Providence, Warwick is the second largest city in Rhode Island. Its incredible shopping opportunities draw hundreds of thousands of people a year, and Warwick is even known as the “Miracle Mile of Shopping.” A month long celebration each year celebrates the city's Revolutionary War history. You can also watch sports, spend a day at a casino, visit the International Tennis Hall of fame, or see the famously scenic Newport Rhode Island. The Providence/Warwick area is also near Boston, in the heart of New England.
