After eating at the mall, we decided to walk over to the State House for a tour. Beautiful building with some construction going on. Our tour guide was very knowledgable and was able to answer all our questions. Worth a stop.
Well, there's quite frankly not a lot to do in Providence. No knocks on the city, it's nice and pretty, just lacking in interesting landmarks or otherwise. However, and notably, the State Capitol building is quite nice. Even has marble stairs outside. I enjoyed visiting it at sunset.
Do the tour with a guide. They are very informative and you will learn a lot about one of the most beautiful state capitol buildings in the country. The state capitol is a suitable visit for people of all ages. They are currently doing renovation work but having also done this tour years ago, I can say that once this... 更多
I love visiting capitol cities! And Rhode Island's capitol did not let me down! It is a rather pretty setting, and the building itself was pristine.

The building itself is stunning. The free tour (every hour on the hour when we were there in early August) was well worth it -- very informative, in a friendly accessible way. Note that the central atrium is full of scaffolding for some renovations, reportedly until November 2016.
What a great and beautiful building to visit. We had a very nice tour of the building. The exterior and interior architecture is simply amazing!
This was one of four state houses we saw on this roadtrip and probably the most impressive. It is a really lovely building with a pretty walk up from the front through a tree-lined walkway. There was a wedding couple having their pictures taken in the trees out front. Really worth visiting
