The Rhode Island capital knows how to bridge the seasons well. Summer’s popular Waterfire—evening bonfires that line the city’s rivers—extends through October, while the blazing New England foliage lights up the daytime. Readers enjoy checking out the local theater scene, wandering through galleries, or holding down a booth at one of the many neighborhood cafés.
