The best ocean view in Newport. Here's the biggest difference between Newport and Providence: Newport doesn't have to light its water on fire to get you to look at it.
12 | PLAY BOCCE ON FEDERAL HILL | PROVIDENCE
Light up a cigar and listen to old-timers talk about how much safer it was when infamous gangster Raymond Patriarca ran the city.
13 | FIND PAULY D | JOHNSTON
It's sort of like the Rhode Island version of "Where's Waldo?" except with more gel and darker tans.
ETERNAL Lovecraft’s resting place.
14 | SWAN POINT CEMETERY | PROVIDENCE
If you're into the whole ghost hunting scene, check out legendary horror writer H.P. Lovecraft's grave. Just know that guy sleeping in the corner isn't haunting the park. He's simply a drunk.
15 | THE HOT CLUB | PROVIDENCE
At no other venue in the state will you find such a collection of political hacks, divorced women, and underage coeds. Perfect on a warm Friday night.
16 | PENGUIN PLUNGE | NARRAGANSETT
What better way to celebrate being stuck in Rhode Island over Christmas break than catching hypothermia on New Year's Day?
17 | EAT A WIMPY SKIMPY AT CASERTA PIZZA | PROVIDENCE
At some point, we traded in our pizza–making skills for wiener expertise, which is probably why even at the most famous pizza joint in the state, a pie filled with spinach and olives is the best thing on the menu.
18 | EDD PEDRO'S ANNUAL WIFFLEBALL TOURNAMENT | PAWTUCKET
One last chance to show off that wicked curve and explain to the world that you could have played baseball at Bryant, but you thought Roger Williams Law was a better career move.
19 | NEWPORT MANSIONS
As your tour guide bores you to death, your goal is to try to come up with 10 things the children who lived in the mansions did for fun in the 1800s. By the time you have an answer, the tour is over and you can make your way over to Christie's for a drink.
20 | COUNT ALL OF THE "ANDRE THE GIANT HAS A POSSE" STICKERS IN PROVIDENCE
STICKER SHOCK Fairey made his mark.
Before street artist Shepard Fairey was running the world, he was causing a nuisance throughout Providence with his little sticker campaigns. Supposedly there are still thousands of these all over the city.
21 | PRIDE WEEKEND
Held each summer, the gay pride celebration is the closest thing we have to Mardi Gras. What can be better than the combination of booze, glitter, confetti, and a parade?
22 | DEPASQUALE SQUARE | PROVIDENCE
Located in the heart of Federal Hill, head here any night during the summer and you'll feel like you're in a different world. There's Sinatra, dancing, and plenty of places to eat. If Joe Pesci were there, it would be GoodFellas.
23 | OLNEYVILLE NY SYSTEM | PROVIDENCE
We may not know how to do pizza, but we've certainly figured out wieners. This joint proves the point.
24 | ROGER WILLIAMS PARK ZOO | PROVIDENCE
Check out the giraffes and elephants that didn't make the cut for the Ringling Bros.
25 | MULLIGAN'S ISLAND | CRANSTON
