Fun Things To Do With Kids

Roger Williams Park Zoo

This summer my we visited with my daughter and grandkids, and spent a wonderful 5 hours viewing exotic animals and having a picnic lunch.

Roger Williams Park Zoo is one of the oldest in nation, opened in 1872.  It is hosts exhibits of over 100 animal species from all over the world.  It’s extremely clean.  There are family-friendly rest rooms for changing infants – we even brought my 6 month old granddaughter along !

One of Roger Williams Zoo’s famous events held in the fall is the Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular.  We hope to get to see that this autumn.

There’s plenty of shaded walking paths, and refreshments if you don’t bring your own lunch.
