How to Staycation at Emblem 125 in Providence, RI
Planning a staycation at Emblem 125? We’ve got you covered. Providence, Rhode Island is the perfect place to plan a vacation while staying close to home. Here are just a few places to visit the next time you have time off.
Roger Williams Park Zoo
One of the oldest zoos in the world, Roger Williams Park Zoo is the perfect place to spend a day meeting a snow leopard, giraffe, elephant, zebra, wildebeest, alligator, kangaroo, and red panda.
Besides the animals, visit The Botanical Center, New England’s largest indoor display garden with 12,000 square feet of gardens with two main greenhouses and three smaller houses surrounded by outdoor gardens. Learn more about Roger Williams Park Zoo.
RISD Museum of Art
Experience French Impressionists, Japanese prints as well as ancient Egyptian, early American or cutting edge contemporary art work all in one place at The Rhode Island School of Design Museum of Art. Just a warning though, it will likely take more than a day to see everything in this museum as visitors have noted each exhibition could be in a museum of its own.

Of course, if you would rather just step outside your door and enjoy the sunshine, checkout Waterplace Park, our neighborhood park. With two narrow rivers winding through Providence, Moshassuck and Woonasquatucket, it might be hard to believe that at one time the rivers were covered by the world’s widest bridge until the 1990s when the waters were revealed to the city once more. This summer, experience WaterFire, a remarkable urban experience for all of the senses. Learn more about WaterFire at Waterplace Park.
