Family friendly things to do in Johnston

My husband has to attend a conference for a week in Johnston in May. He asked if I wanted to come too and make a holiday of it. We would probably go to Boston and New York after Johnston. However, we have 2 children, 5 and 1 year old. I am trying to find information about Johnston and what there is to see and do there, in particular how would I occupy 2 young children for the 5 days my husband is working? I haven't found anything in my google searches and was hoping to get some tips from locals. Thanks!

I think I may have solved my own problem. My husband's work is in Johnston but he will stay in a hotel in Providence, so that will make the sightseeing options a lot easier!

Rhode Island is so small that as long as you have a car you can easily tour the whole state.. Johnston is about 10-15 minutes from Providence.

Johnston isn't a place for visitors, at all. Check out Providence or drive down to Newport to see the best of RI.

Hello from the Visitors Bureau! Two great resources for things to do with kids are the website www,kidoinfo.com and our website www.GoProvidence.com. Both have calendar listings and info on local attractions. Have fun!

Ahh, my hometown. There is nothing to do in Johnston, it's not a tourist type place. You can get pulled over in the speed trap on Route 6 under I-295 :)

If you are stuck in Johnston and can't get out for that day, consider Luigi's Restaurant for lunch or dinner.
