You know, the suburb of Providence.

My wife is taking my daughter down for a girls weekend soon. I was charged with asking the hive mind here for advice.

Cool and or funky independent shops for a girl to visit?
Areas to avoid?
Areas to go to?
Safe areas in or around that area to look at Hotels or Air B&B?

Avoid Quahog. I hear there is a fat mentally handicapped man there who's known for causing all kinds of trouble.

Fellini's pizza on Wickenden St. Whole wheat pizza with a lot of different flavors available by the slice. There are also some funky shops up the road.

Hmm Waterfire is over, otherwise I would recommend that.

If you're strictly in Providence, there are some cool areas around Brown. RISD is also pretty slick.

Outside of the capital, I'm a big fan of Bristol, RI. Cool main street, lots of water views, maybe better during the summer but a very excellent little town. Beehive for brunch and all the little clothing shops is a favorite of the Mrs.

Obviously Newport is filled with little oddball places.

There's lots of awesome food down here thanks to JWU. Providence in general is pretty safe, just be smart and stick to the main, well-lit areas after dark. If they want to stay in providence the east side is quite nice, but may be a little pricey for airbnb.

Like pbryne said Newport is really funky. Flo's clam shack in Middletown is an old college favorite of mine.

Thayer, Wickenden and benefit street are all nice eclectic walking areas. There's awesome coffee everywhere, Bolt, New Harvest and Blue State Coffee are great. For food there's almost too much to recommend, what kind of food do they like?
