Providence

4.2

The Renaissance City

Providence has undergone a major upgrade in recent years, transforming from a rough-around-the-edges industrial city into an epicenter of culture. Today you'll encounter a rich collection of museums and theaters coupled with tasty ethnic cuisine and energetic nightlife, plus a refurbished downtown area. Federal Hill, just west of downtown, remains one of the biggest draws for visitors due to its historical architecture, outstanding Italian restaurants, strong concentration of shops, and buzzing bars and clubs. The presence of colleges and universities adds a youthful exuberance. As the third-largest city in New England, Providence hosts plenty of special events, such as concerts and fairs. Providence is in Rhode Island (RI). Put Providence at the heart of your travel plans by using our United States road trip planning tool .
