Preserved by the National Trust, Cheshire Hall is one of the main historic attractions on Providenciales. Guides offer this 200 year-old cotton plantation tours giving visitors a glimpse of the challenges faced by the plantation owners at the time.
It's OK... still go see it, since you are so close.
Conch Bar Caves National Park protects 24 km of underground caverns and is one of the largest cave systems in the Caribbean region. Some of the caves have lagoons as well as stalactites and stalagmites, and most have colonies of bats. Lucayan Indians left petroglyphs on the walls.
A National Trust Heritage site, Crossing Place Trail is a coastal path established in the 18th century by plantation settlers and slaves. This 8 km hiking and biking trail leads along coastal headlands, beaches, and inland bush with interpretive signs along the way.
A 5 km slice of coastline along the north of Middle Caicos, Mudjin Harbour is one of the most photographed sites on the Turks and Caicos Islands.

Most visitors to Providenciales will find a day trip to North Caicos and Middle Caicos highly enjoyable. These two islands, despite being the two largest in the country, have small populations and low levels of development. They're laid-back and quiet, and offer an atmosphere not unlike Providenciales was like twenty years ago.
It's easy to see Grand Turk on a day trip from Providenciales. There are several flights each day from Providenciales, which leave early and return late in the day. It's only possible to reach Grand Turk via domestic flight as there are no ferries from Providenciales.
