Get out[edit]

If you're looking for additional activities just outside of Warwick some additional places of interest include AMF Lanes (1450 Elmwood Ave, Cranston, RI 02910) and Roger Williams Park (also accessible from Elmwood Ave). The Providence Place Mall is located just 20 minutes away and is a great destination for shopping as the mall is larger than the one in Warwick.

Adjacent Providence or nearby Newport make good next destinations.
