In addition to these programs, the organization keeps local history alive at its three historic sites. Visitors can embark on guided or self-guided explorations of the 18th-century John Brown House Museum—a registered National Historic Landmark—as well as the library, which houses the society's collections.

As the sun begins to dip below the skyline, the Providence River’s surface flares up, tinged with its flickering glow. In the hazy sunset light, a gondola emerges cutting through the still water’s surface. Led by owner Marcello, La Gondola’s group of gondoliers row with the mission to only furnish passengers with romantic sojourns and to celebrate the riverfront and the city’s Italian ties. Each of his Venice-built gondolas gleams with intricately wrought ornaments and solid brass trim, and at 36 feet, they comfortably hold a gondolier, guests, and the occasional hitchhiking tugboat captain.
Each gondola trip his company takes gets Marcello’s custom touch, as he tailors every trip to passengers’ desires. “No matter who you are,” he says, “we strive to make you feel like the queen and king of the river.” In agreement with many other residents, Marcello considers Waterplace Park a city hub: “If the park is the heart of the city, the river is the lifeblood,” He says. He hopes the rebirth of the local riverfront parallels a local renaissance for gondoliering as well, which inspired him to plan the Gondolympics.
Carved through dense pine trees according to the vision of legendary course designer Donald Ross, Triggs Memorial Golf Course incorporates the natural terrain into a scenic 18-hole layout. The course begins with three long par 4s—demanding par 4s have become the course's calling card—making it a daunting layout for slow-starting swings and jet-lagged 9-irons. Flat terrain eases golfers into the round on the front nine, and more hilly terrain awaits on the back nine to complicate club selection and force the occasional above- or below-the-feet lie. Before finishing the round, players must again face down long par 4s on holes 17 and 18, each measuring more than 400 yards and marked by gentle curvature that renders shot shaping of prime importance.
After rounds, golfers can head to Yogi's Grill, where a menu of sandwiches, wraps, burgers, and 13 beers slakes appetites that haven't been spoiled by handfuls of savory greenside sand.
Course at a Glance:
18-hole, par 72 course
Course rating of 72.0 from the farthest tees
Slope rating of 124 from the farthest tees
