As cities with rich pasts and unique presents, Providence and Newport have much to offer even the most casual of visitors. Beneath their much-glimpsed surfaces lie sights and sounds sure to enchant both tourists and residents. This nontraditional travel guide explores the historic streets and tucked-away nooks of both cities. Visit H. P. Lovecraft's tomb and Edgar Allan Poe's favorite garden, search ordinary buildings for extraordinary art, see the servants' side of life during the Gilded Age, and find green parrots where they would be least expected. Whether the goal is fine dining (want Chinese?—pick a province) or the most obscure sites (a back gate with a stone seat on top), this guide is sure to satisfy.
