“Don't miss the opportunity to tour Brown's historic campus while visiting town -- it's just a short walk away. The campus is filled with beautiful, carefully maintained brick and stone buildings, courtyards, and monuments. I would recommend walking Benefit street to see some of the finest examples of Victorian architecture in New England!”
