I went to this zoo a few years ago and it was a great time. I was so happy to experience the park on an enchanting fall evening. We went for the Jack O Lantern Spectacular and that was so much fun. We were driving out and saw some EDM style swan rides and of course we had to go for a night glide around the pond. It was $10 per person but a priceless experience. I highly recommend trying this out. You are allowed to go around the pond twice, but we had a great time.

I had a truly fabulous experience here. I love museums, the MFA is my home. I expected the RISD Museum to only have the work of students. I was shocked and entertained by the museum's offerings. Discussion provoking art created by students. Aside from that, the museum had work of Van Gough, Monet, and countless other significant and historic artists. I loved the layout of the museum and I managed to spend several hours here. Definitely a great date idea or something to do this winter.

This is my favorite indoor play place to take my kids. We go to this place a few times a month. There are lots of fun activities for children ages 3 and up. They were very intentional about designing every station to make it fun and educational for Children and their parents! Kids learn new things using all types of learning styles. They recently remodeled some parts and it's even better than before. Our favorite room is the water area, please check it out! This place is perfect.
