Trinity Repertory Company#6 in Best Things To Do in Providence
Trinity Repertory Company (or Trinity Rep for short) is Providence's premier acting troupe. The resident company puts on an average of six productions a year – varying from contemporary pieces to classic theater with an edgy new spin. The Trinity Rep's annual "A Christmas Carol" production is one of Providence's most popular holiday traditions.
Recent audience members said the performances are always top-notch and highly recommended attending a show if there's one playing during your visit. Reviewers also suggested grabbing dinner and drinks before or after the show since the theater that the company performs in is surrounded by fun restaurants and bars.
Trinity Rep's ticket office and two performance spaces can be found in the Lederer Theater Center, which is located in downtown Providence off of Washington Street. Tickets vary by performance date and time, but generally start at $25 per person. Check the website for a performance schedule and more information.

#1 RISD Museum
This hidden gem's five buildings are clustered on the south side of the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) campus. Inside, more than 91,000 works of art are on display, including pieces by Monet, Degas and other impressionists, along with sizeable Medieval and Gothic collections.
Recent visitors were most impressed with the range of the museum's collection and the various mediums represented. Reviewers also praised its size, saying it was manageable and easy to explore within a few hours (though culture hounds will likely want to spend half a day, say travelers). Though most found the admission price to be reasonable, they also suggested scheduling your museum visit for Sunday when entrance fees are waived.
