After graceful spins across the ice, guests can indulge in cocoa, coffee, and delicious eats from downtown Providence's nearby local haunts. The rink also offers birthday party packages with the use of a heated pavilion space, group reservations for business and social outings, and full-ice private event rentals.
With roughly 12,000 square feet of verdant plant life, Roger Williams Park Botanical Center has earned the distinction as New England's largest indoor garden. Unveiled in 2007, most of that space comprises The Conservatory and Mediterranean Room greenhouses, where 150-plus species dwell, from cacti and aloe to 17 varieties of palm. Even more plants spread their roots in the park's outdoor grounds, which include a perennial garden, a wooded hillside garden, and a rose maze. Though self-guided treks are a breeze here, the center also hosts tours led by trained University of Rhode Island master gardeners, who explain each plant's characteristics and how it adapts to its climate. For youngsters, meanwhile, the Learning Landscapes program encourages hands-on activities, including stroking a coyote's fur and feeding artisanal flies to discerning Venus flytraps.
Mocha’s Pet Salon, named after the owner’s dog, operates under the philosophy that pets should be groomed in a place that’s as relaxing and stress-free as home.

As a result, dogs of all shapes and sizes prance out of the salon’s two locations looking, feeling, and smelling like a million bucks.
