Exploring Providence

Every year when Peter attends the EDRA conference I go along. It's been in lots of great cities but this year it was in nearby Providence, which turns out to be a truly great city as well. The whole place is especially walkable, from Down City across to RISD and up to Brown. The art school influence is strong with lots of unique and well-curated small shops and there are fabulous residential loft buildings right in the heart of downtown. Add to that great food - particularly at a restaurant called New Rivers - excellent coffee and one of the season's first Water Fire events, all of which made for a very special visit. I'm ready to go back anytime, a good possibility since it's less than an hour's drive from Boston. Here's a mixture of photos from the trip.
