There are a few special items Forbes Travel Guide editors can recommend you bring home from Providence. Grab an artist’s rendering of Federal Hill, Narragansett Bay or the Newport Beaches from one of the local shops near the Rhode Island School of Design or along the sidewalks that line Brown University. If you’re driving from Providence to a nearby city, take a cannoli with you from the Italian district Federal Hill. And if you’re looking for something truly unique, stop by the Roger Williams Park Zoo adoption office and pledge your commitment to one of the animals in the park. You’ll take home a certificate of adoption and photo of your adopted animal — you’ll be able to keep the animal close to your heart even when you’re no longer in Providence.
