providence, rhode island
providence is a super charming town. it's got the topography and victorian architecture of san fransisco, the colonial history and extravagant opulence of newport, along with a touch of detroit-style decay.
if you happen to visit providence this summer, the RISD museum has a fantastic exhibit up through august 18th: artist/rebel/dandy: men of fashion. you don't have to be a dude to appreciate it. and if you're looking for an adorable place to eat or drink, the duck and bunny, a snuggery is perfect. the crepe nachos and a lavalambp are no joke.
