Five things to do in Providence in January

The holidays are over and we are back to boring winter life.  Joking of course, but it's very easy to fall into a winter routine that includes work, food, and sleep. If it wasn't for my daughter I know I would do that. Since I'm always on the lookout of something fun to do, I thought I would share with you my top five things to do in Providence this January.

1. Ice skating. Since it hasn't snowed at all yet and Providence doesn't have mountains I didn't include skiing and snow tubing, but one thing that we can do outdoors is ice skating! Conveniently located in the center of downtown the Alex and Ani City Center includes Ice skating and Bumper cars. Bumper cars sell out quickly especially on the weekends so I recommend to book online: The Providence Rink. They are open 7 days a week from 10 AM to 10 PM, and if you are bad at skating they offer Skating Aids and lessons

2. Library. What's a better time to read a book than winter? I already can imagine myself with a cup of tea wrapped up in a cozy blanket by the fireplac. If you decide to leave your warm nest I found very charming library: The Providence Athenaeum, where you will find a lot of small corners to read.  

3. Caffe. Winter is also time for hot cocoa, hot tea, hot caffe mocha, and all the pastries to go with those. Thankfully we have couple more months to start worrying about our summer bodies, so let's indulge. My favorite coffee spots downtown are Ellie's Bakery, Small Point Cafe, Sydney Providence, and Knead Doughnuts

4. RISD Museum includes a coffee shop and a museum, so if you ask me it's the best of two worlds, and I don't think I need to write anything more to convince you to go. I also wrote a blog post about Museum this Fall so click on the link to find out more info: RISD Museum

5. Providence restaurant week (January 13th - 26th). If you wanted to visit a fancy restaurant in Providence or just try something new it's the time. Participating restaurants will offer a three-course lunch at $16.95 and or a three-course dinner at $29.95 or $34.95. Personally, I would like to go to Gracies and Waterman Grill, but you have a list of 70 restaurants to choose from. For the list of all restaurants got to GoLocalProv.

Let me know what would you chose to do in the city this month.
