Give your eyes a feast at one of the state's best-kept secrets, the Culinary Archives and Museum in Providence; take in a ball game and soak up the old-time atmosphere at charming Cardines Field in Newport; or stroll through Charlestown's Fantastic Umbrella Factory shops, a funky collection of 1960s-style boutiques. So if you've "been there, done that" one too many times, get off the main road and venture Off the Beaten Path.
