Beaches. RIs are far superior to any of those others. Scenery... the Newport coastline is very beautiful and very accessible, far more than in any of those other cities, with it's public wharfs, Cliff Walk and Ocean Drive. In Providence WaterFire is unique.


The arts and dining in Providence are as good as Boston, if not better. I think only NYC has a better arts scene, and the dining in Providence and Newport is more accessible than the larger cities. Both Providence and Newport have intense presevation efforts and are loaded with historical buildings and sites.. At the same time there is a lack of the congestion and traffic of Boston, NY, Philly and Baltimore. Portland traffic is comparable to Providence. Newport traffic is much easier to deal with.

Whether you choose RI depends on what you enjoy doing on your vacation.
