This rail trail stretches north from Providence, RI, and will eventually reach all the way to Worcester, MA. It's less crowded than Providence's popular East Bay Bike Path, making it easier for kids new to cycling to navigate. The historic Blackstone River has many sites of interest along the route, highlighting the river's rich industrial history. Benches overlook dams and waterfalls, providing good spots for a water break or a picnic.

That place is honestly amazing. We have spent few days of holiday in it. There is so much fun you can have with your family.  I even pay to write my personal statement in order to figure out what other beautiful places exist in my country.
