Just because Rhode Island is small doesn't mean you can't do some large-scale shopping, and the perfect all-purpose stop is Providence Place Mall. With eateries, shops, and services aimed to please, your experience will surely be memorable. Furnish your home with the modern sheik styles at Pottery Barn, or buy that electronic gadget you saw on TV that you've been dying for at Sharper Image. Run into Champs Sports and buy a jersey for your favorite player or a pair of sneakers that make your feet smile. Or step into Journeys and find some trendy Doc Martens or Candy's.
If you're running low on funds or require bank teller services, both Citizens Bank and Bank of America have locations within Providence Place Mall. If your stomach starts growling, or you feel the need to satisfy a craving, try the food court for favorites such as Dairy Queen, Subway, and Taco Bell. If you'd rather "dine in" with wait staff service, try Houlihan's (an Irish Pub style restaurant), the Cheesecake Factory (save room for dessert!), or Uno's Chicago Grill (serving excellent pizza and pasta). You can also eat at Dave & Busters and follow your meal with games and other fun times.
Don't leave without checking out the National Amusements Cinema 16 to see if there's a movie playing you just can't miss. And take a gander at the Feinstein IMAX Theatre for a special film experience. Theatre hours usually extend beyond regular mall hours (which are Monday through Saturday from 10:00am to 9:30pm and Sunday from 11:00am to 7:00pm), so you don't have to hurry.
Park in a garage, and take advantage of the services for shoppers within the mall. Complimentary wheelchair services are offered to disabled shoppers (on a first come, first serve basis), and stroller rentals are available (for only $2.00, much less than most malls). So, don't discount Rhode Island due to size - the Providence Place Mall promises satisfaction in a big way!
