BEST CITY ESCAPE
CHRISTOPHER DODGE HOUSE, Providence
This 14-room B&B, housed in an Italianate mansion, is slightly out of the downtown Providence fray, but still only a 10-minute walk to great shopping, dining, and theatre. The rooms are charming (most have a gas fireplace or stove), staffers are sweet, and breakfasts–from blueberry pancakes to vegetable quiche–are hearty. Rates: from $130, including full breakfast. 11 West Park St. 401-351-6111; providence-hotel.comBEST OFF-THE-GRID ESCAPE
GEORGE WASHINGTON MEMORIAL CAMPING AREA, Glocester
This no-frills, never-crowded campground sprawls over 100 wooded acres (part of the 4,000-acre George Washington Management Area) and features a lake for swimming and kayaking, a walking trail, and plenty of peace and quiet. Rates: from $20. 2185 Putnam Pike. 401-568-6700; riparks.comBEST GROWN-UP GETAWAY
HOTEL MANISSES, Block Island
It’s a stately Victorian with 17 guestrooms dressed in wicker. The vibe is decidedly mature: A decanter of brandy awaits, there’s an afternoon “wine and nibbles” hour, and a no-kids-under-12 policy. Rates: from $220, including full breakfast. 5 Spring St. 401-466-2421; blockislandresorts.com
