3. What to DoOn Saturday nights through October, walk to the city's three rivers to see WaterFire Providence, a Barnaby Evans fire sculpture that has become a community event. Stroll along the brazier-laden waterways accompanied by musicians, artists, and food vendors. In colder weather, set kids up at the outdoor Bank of America Skating Center. It's affordable compared to the one in Rockefeller Center and three times less crowded. For kids ages 1 to 11, the Providence Children's Museum hosts bright, informative, and fun exhibits about a range of topics from recycling to teeth.
