Merging a small town feel with sophisticated big city lures, a Providence County vacation allows you to scale modern urban streetscapes while exploring historical treasures at the same time. With a landscaped riverside trail and refurbished downtown's lanes lined by hip cafes, fusion restaurants, and cutting-edge art galleries, Rhode Island's capital city is perfect for urban strolling. Nature lovers can stop by the town of Woonsocket on the way back from its eponymous waterfalls and have a hearty lunch at a farm-to-table restaurant. For a family day out, head to Riverside and check out its famous, perfectly preserved turn-of-the-20th-century carousel. Providence County boasts a fast-growing tourist industry and so many exciting attractions, from vibrant urban neighborhoods to thriving arts communities to ethnic cuisine, and much more. Take a peek at our international travel planner: Providence County and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.
