Resturents and sightseeing

by Dhanu Online Now Jan 28, 2009 at 2:03 PM

Hi All,

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.

    If you are staying in a hotel in Providence, just walk across the highway on one of the bridges. You are looking for Federal hill. This is the old Italian district that is famous for mobsters and great restaurants (Best in the USA). Ask your hotel how to get there and to recommend restaurants.

    I don't know the hours, but the Rhode Island School of design has a great museum.
