PROVIDENCE, RHODE ISLAND
Providence was founded by Protestant pastor Roger Williams in 1636, and the name means “divine care.” Williams was a campaigner for religious liberty and had been expelled from the Massachusetts Bay Colony for his radical religious and political beliefs (he argued for the division between Church and State). Williams and his followers purchased the settlement from the Narragansett Indians, and Williams named it in gratitude to “God’s merciful providence unto me in my distress.” He later said, “I desired it might be a shelter for persons distressed of conscience.”
State House: Touring this State House is phenomenal, eye-opening, enriching learning experience! The legislative and executive branches of Rhode Island government run in this building. Built in late 1800’s by famous architect McKim, Mead & White, whose works include Boston Public Library and NY Penn Station, the State House is a beautiful unique building. Materials chosen include marble from Georgia & Italy, real 24K karat gold painted by feather, oak & mahogany wood, etc., make this gem an architectural wonder! Awesome paintings and murals. The 4th largest free standing dome building has the bronze “independent man” on top! Guided Tours run every hour from 9 am to 3 pm. Lot of rich history & Stories, from the Native American times & United States Founding to Civil War & WW II. See the government happenings of senate and house of representatives’ activities. Providence Rhode Island represents independence, freedom, and revival. Take this free guided tour and see for yourself why this is a must-see! Meaningful rooms to see include:
The governor’s meeting room, with real gold trim work and a renowned, expensive George Washington portrait.
The Charter Museum; the original 200+ year old, preserved declaration of independence from Rhode Island is housed here.
Rhode Island School of Design Museum of Art: a small museum which makes it manageable and not overwhelming, yet contains beautiful representative pieces. RSID museum has a wonderful collection of art from all over the world. The museum is assembled at a human scale, just enough of each type of art to get your interest.
Providence Performing Arts Center: This theater is beautifully restored and may reminds you of Radio City Music Hall in New York City. This has always been a great venue to go and be entertained! Lots of parking around the theatre! Once inside, notice and be amazed at the architecture of this theatre! This theatre is one of the “old great ladies” whose lines, curves, structure, and sounds are truly representative of an earlier “Grand Era”. Go in, have a glass (or two) of wine, get comfortable in your seat, and enjoy a great show! The decor is elegant and the acoustics are very good. The theater hosts many shows that are Broadway musicals on tour and many other performances by major musicians. There is something for everyone.
Roger Williams Park Zoo: This zoo was wonderful! It’s large enough to see a variety of exotic animals yet small enough where it’s not overwhelming and still VERY family friendly. Roger Williams Park zoo is so much more than the name seems to indicate. Every year, the park offers up a series of special events that are truly must see events in Rhode Island. During October, there is the pumpkin display for Halloween. This multi week event offers up some of the most creative and wonderfully designed lighted pumpkin carved items ever put together in one setting. Great place for kids, teens, adults. Lot of interactive activities. A vast assortment of animals. Very educational and fun! You will learn a lot.
Historic Federal Hill: You will have the best time visiting the bakeries, Italian delis, and restaurants on Federal Hill. Constantino’s located at DePasquale Plaza on Federal Hill, the ‘Little Italy’ section of Providence, houses Salvatore’s Cafe which has wonderful espresso, fresh filled cannoli, and biscotti. It’s a wonderful way to spend the afternoon taking in all the sights. It doesn’t hurt to go on a Fri. or Sat. Night-if you’re lucky you’ll hear Dominic & His Band Playing & Singing for your Dancing Pleasure. A Great Night Out! The archway leading into the Federal Hill area has a wonderful plaque recognizing the contributions of Italian-Americans. A must-see place when visiting Providence!
Getting to Providence from Tampa is a flight away (one stop) and Travelkatz will be happy to help you make this vacation happen for you and your family. Call us at 352-277-2700.
