    Default Two Days in Rhode Island

    I'm going to Providence, RI next week for two days because my wife is attending a conference. That means I have two days to explore around. Looking for any recommendations. Should I go to Newport or Mystic, CT for a day trip? What are the definite "DO NOT MISS" spots of either place for someone with an interest in wooden boats?

    Thanks in advance.

    The Herreshoff Museum in Bristol is very nice.

    What's so funny about peace love & understanding?

    Thanks for the Herreshoff Museum recommendations. I spent an afternoon there. Difficult to take in all the information in one visit. It will be on my list for a revisit on a future trip.
