Mike’s Kitchen, Cranston
Mike’s food–calamari, polenta with sausages, stuffed artichokes–is simple Italian that will keep you coming back for more. There’s no sign, because it’s tucked inside a VFW hall, so look for VFW Post 2396 and follow the garlic. Hours can be irregular, so call ahead. Entrées: from $10. 170 Randall St. 401-946-5320

What Cheer Antiques,
Vintage books, clothing, jewelry, vinyl records, embroidered fabrics, ephemera and maps, Victorian hardware, and other surprises crowd this underground shop. Part history lesson, part treasure hunt. 7 South Angell St. 401-861-4244

Stepping Stone Ranch,
West Greenwich
In addition to shorter trail rides, Stepping Stone offers an overnight for experienced equestrians with grub and bunkhouse accommodations ($160). The day starts with a three-hour ride through Arcadia Park, with bucolic views, covered bridges, and a swim break (for the riders). Guests then return to the barn for a cozy campfire meal before turning in at the group bunkhouse. After breakfast, you’re back in the saddle for the morning. 201 Escoheag Hill Road. 401-397-3725;

Brown/Trinity Playwrights’ Repertory Theatre,
For little more than the price of a movie ticket ($12), see performances by actors and directors at this training camp for the Trinity Repertory Company. Leeds Theatre, 77 Waterman St. 401-863-2838;

Blackstone valley explorer,
Central Falls & Woonsocket
From May through October, learn about the industrial history and ecosystem of what was once known as “America’s Hardest-Working River,” as well as today’s restoration efforts. Tickets: $10.
