Providence is a compact, thriving American capital city that neatly cross-stitches the fabric of New England history with a vibrant dining palate and an edgy arts, music and cultural scene. "Something for everyone" might be a clichéd phrase, but in Providence it's an everyday reality.
This "Creative Capital" boasts the modern attractions and cosmopolitan amenities of big cities, but with unpretentious fun and an enviable array of accessible options.
Providence's signature event, WaterFire draws tens of thousands of people to the heart of the city.

The park also contains waterways, walks, Botanical Center, a Carousel Village, Museum of Natural History and Planetarium.
