Gain a new perspective on neighborhoods around the city during Jane’s Walk, a global weekend festival inspired by urban activist Jane Jacobs on May 6-8. Eleven walks are already planned in Providence throughout the weekend, starting from different locations at staggered times. http://janeswalk.org/united-states/providence/ Unlike typical guided tours, these FREE citizen-led walks encourage community conversations to get people thinking, talking, and connecting with each other. Anyone can participate! Wear comfortable shoes, meet your tour leader in the designated meeting spot, and get ready for a lively discussion!
