Providence RI!
« on: July 16, 2008, 08:47:03 PM »

Is there anyone that knows how to get around Providence?  I'll be going tomorrow for my first college visit there, and the trains and buses are CONFUSING as hell!

just about all the buses leave from kennedy plaza downtown,
which is two blocks from the train station

there is a small building at one end of  kennedy plaza,
where you can sometimes get help and directions

if that fails, just keep asking people

I do! If you need a tourguide, I'm your wolady.

And hey, Len's right, and go to RIPTA.com for bus schedules. What college are you going to? The brown campus & the RISD campus are fairly easy to navigate by foot. It's lots of walking, but it's all very good walks.

If you do one thing.... go and visit H.P.Lovecraft's grave.

the RISD Museum is very good

providence also has a art gallery night once a month

there is also the waterfire festival a few times a month,
when it's warm
among the delights is the highest density of living statues
i know of

if you're into those kinda of things,
and have some flexibility on scheduling
