Best Cities for a Long Weekend

Everyone like to get away for a weekend. Our friends at Orbitz did a ton of research and compiled a list of the best places for you to take a long weekend.

#5 Providence, RI
The overlooked sibling of both Boston and Portland, there is no shortage of treasures awaiting visitors to the Ocean State’s capital city. Downtown is getting a promising makeover starting with the arrival of the Dean Hotel which includes Bavarian bites at onsite restaurant Faust and backroom imbibing at the Magdalenae Room. Rent a bike and spend a day cycling the region’s incredible network of bike paths, but get back to the city in time for dinner at North, Terikyaki Korean House or Tallulah’s Tacqueria. The RISD Museum is a must as is Little Italy stalwart Venda Ravioli, drinks at chic rooftop bar G Pub, a jolt of java at White Electric Coffee Co. and shopping along Westminster Street.

Check out all the others and where Providence ranks in the top ten here.
