24 Hours in Providence, RI
Grab a brunch at Grange. Try Vegan Chicken and waffles. The place’s atmosphere is elevated by both a cocktail bar and a juice bar
Make your way to one of the city’s not-so-hidden gems: the RISD Museum. Its exhibitions run the gamut, showing pieces by artists from Monet and Picasso to Andy Warhol and Coco Chanel. There are more than 100,000 works of art on display, but you’ll definitely want to check out its textile collection, considering the region’s mill history.
You can have afternoon snacks in the “snuggery” that is Duck and Bunny. Defined as a cozy and comfortable place, the snuggery/tea room/restaurant is tucked inside a pale pink Colonial.
Time to switch gears. Put beer and contemporary art behind you as you enter the Providence Athenaeum, a historical membership library once frequented by the likes of Edgar Allan Poe. Browse its beautiful stacks, and see if you can find which books Poe checked out back in the day.
Top off that PVD retail therapy with a taste of the South at Bucktown. This cozy little joint serves up almost everything fried you-name-it.
Check-in for the rest of the night with a Vintage vibe at The Dean Hotel to complete your staycation experience!
