About Adventure in Providence
One of Rhode Island's greatest virtues is it's consolidated geography. Providence is centrally located and easily accessible by all of the state's major roadways. While walking the streets provides plenty of outdoor exposure, there are more outdoor adventures a short distance from the city. The residential parts of the city, however, do offer their share of walking paths, and the city's hills can be quite a hike!
Goddard Memorial Park (about 25 minutes south) has miles of rambling trails and beachfront. Hiking also abounds in the Blackstone Valley region of northern Rhode Island.
