Are there any local beaches, ponds, or just areas to walk by the water in the town of Woonsocket, or close proximity?
I am trying to create a block island scavenger hunt for my boyfriends birthday but cant seem to find a local willing to help me out. Any suggestions?
I want to know if there is outdoor seating in this restaurant?
Gerry's Cafe Mania restaurant (339 Arnold Street)
Also, want to know if New York Lunch (1 Main Street) is primarily
a dine-in restaurant or a take-out place. (And it doesn't look
like they have any outdoor seating at this place anyway).
I added an entry for "Things to Do" for Woonsocket some minutes ago but it hasn't appeared in the list yet (which still has the 5 that were there before).
Why? Does my entry have to go through a moderator before appearing on the page?
I'll be in Providence in mid-March 2014 w/ a 10month old baby and 4 year old. We've been to the kid's museum, RW zoo and carousel....are there other fun places for us to visit in Providence or environs? If the weather is nice we'd like to visit outdoor places too.
Is there some place near the block island airport to rent mopeds or do we need to take taxi over to ferry area?

I live in a town called Wroclaw in Poland. I've found something what could be common to our cities. We have a fountain called "Bear Fountain", that was made by a German sculpor Moritz Geyger in 1904. Wroclaw was German and its name was Breslau at that time. Geyger made a copy of the Bear and the copy should be now somewhere in the Brown University in Providence. The Bear sculpture in Providence has a label where you can probably read that the sculpture was made by Geyger and it is a copy of Breslau Bear or something like that.
If you have time could you check it for me. Thank you.
Please read my review about it too:

Hello. I'm looking at going to to the folk festival in July and I'm looking for a cheap place to stay. The hostel is still expensive for a dorm bed at109 - pretty steep for a hostel but I guess it is the weekend festival so they can charge whatever they want.
Looking into flying into Providence. Can I get a shuttle/bus from there to Newport from the airport?
Wondering if anyone knows of a good beach town(s) in Rhode Island. Preferably something with some shopping and a bit of a nightlife. If this is asking too much, just a good beach in general will suffice. Thanks in advance.
I know this is an unusual question....Does the water taste good in Block Island? I am not sure if I should bring something like a Brita pitcher. Thanks for any input.
Hello - I will be in Newport for 9 days. Is a week-long trolley pass available to purchase?

I am planning to see the Nutcracker at Rosecliff Mansion at 4 pm on a Friday.

Is this possible?
Where can we go after work to hear some live music (guitar/piano) while having a couple of cocktails ? Preference is Providence metro area, but we could drive a bit. Thanks !
Really, looking for a spot to sleep wildly on a beach into my sleeping bag, to enjoy a night under stars. Have I any chances to find such spot on Block Island ? Any camping site ?( not a hotel) . Does it has any not private land ? By the way, can I fish over there for free with my NY residency ?
We have a single June day for sightseeing, starting out our day In Warwick, Rhode Island.
Would you recommend Newport, Rhode Island or Mystic, Connecticut?
We know that Newport has many beautiful 19th century mansions and a quaint downtown area. We also have read about Mystic's Seaport, its ships, and its relocated historic buildings.
Which place in your opinion is a better use of our sightseeing day and will be more memorable? Why?
Could someone please advise me if this is where cruise ships land their passengers?
Thanks in advance

Hello, We are planning to visit Cape Cod (a day trip from Boston). Can someone guide us to the best sea beach. We like sea shore where you feel the waves and wind.
Information about other places of interest too will be very much appreciated.
Can anyone recommend a good seafood place to purchase live lobster?
I am traveling from NYC to Providence and then Boston. I was planning to use Amtrak, but having never been to Providence or Boston, I'm not sure how easy it is to get around either one without a car. How good is the public transport in Providence? Also, what should I try to see if I am in Providence for only 2 or 3 days?
I'll be in Providence, RI for couple of days on official business, so I can do sight seen only after about 4 or 5PM. Also I don't have a car, so I would need places that are accessible by public transportation.
1. What are some good sight seen places?
2. I would like to try some good local restaurants for dinner. specially the following
- place for clam chowder
- place for lobster
- another place for sushi
- anything else that you recommend?
2. I have on half day free on one day and planning to hop on the train and go to Boston. so recommendations from Boston are also welcome.
