Hubby and I live in a small Midwest town devoid of culture and liberal thought. Once a year, we try to go somewhere we can find art, music, good food, and natural beauty. I was minutes away from booking our third trip to San Francisco when I got an email alert about a fare sale to Providence. The price and dates are right, but I would really like to hear from locals and visitors about Providence and nearby areas. We would like to relax and eat well, but we would also enjoy visiting museums, taking in some history, and unique shopping. Can we find that in Rhode Island? What is the weather like in July? Any specific actiivities you would recommend for a couple who has never visited the Northeast?
Thanks for any input!
