An old New England farming town just 11 miles from the center of Providence, Lincoln offers rural charm and wide-open spaces with close proximity to jobs. Parks, hiking and golfing at three nearby courses are the main draws. There may not be much economic activity to speak of - the town's biggest business is a race-track-turned-gambling-hall called Twin Rivers - but its laid-back tempo contrasts nicely with the frenetic pace of the city. -A.F.
