Historic Federal Hill

Historic Federal Hill is the “Heartbeat of Providence” and begins at Atwells Avenue, the great street that flows under the arch. Listen to the lofty church bells while walking the cobblestone walkways and shop at boutiques, visit the art galleries and dine in some of the finest restaurants in the country.

Bakeries and coffee shops are full of delicious breads and pastries and a must for that perfect cup of espresso or cappuccino. Enjoy dining and music outdoors in the great square with the grand fountain.

Parks

Colt State Park

Colt State Park’s 464 acres of lawns, stone walls, and curving drives along one of the state’s most spectacular shorelines stands in contrast to one of Rhode Island’s charming, compact, historic seaports, the Town of Bristol. On July 4th, every year since 1785, the town of Bristol puts on America’s team colors and hosts a national celebration that’s actually older than the ratification of the U.S. Constitution. Fittingly, it was Rhode Island which closed that exercise, and the nation began.

Roger Williams Zoo

One of the first zoos to open in the United States, Roger Williams Park Zoo was founded in 1872 with a collection of small animal exhibits throughout Providence’s newly formed Roger Williams Park. Conservation and environmental education were unknown concepts at the time; the animals were simply on display.

Since then Roger Williams Park Zoo has grown both in terms of its exhibits and its mission. What started as a scattered collection of small animals on display purely for the purpose of entertainment has today evolved into “New England’s great zoo” (The Boston Globe) and one of our region’s foremost centers for conservation and environmental education.
The zoo houses over 957 animals representing 156 species!
