10 — Providence
Travel + Leisure ranked Providence first overall in the nation for food and restaurants. But food isn't the only thing to love about Providence. An enriching culture invites your active participation — take in a show, stroll through a museum, soak up the ambience at WaterFire. As you wander the streets of the East Side, expect to be delighted by the architecture and sense of history. Just down the hill from Brown, you’ll find the Rhode Island School of Design (also known as RISD), one of the nation’s most prestigious art and design schools. Brown and RISD have a collaborative relationship that offers a wealth of benefits to both communities.
