Things to Do in Providence

Providence is a compact, thriving American capital city; one 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. 

Providence boasts the modern attractions and cosmopolitan amenities of big cities, but with forward-thinking, unpretentious fun and an enviable array of accessible options.

Roger Williams Park is a top-notch family attraction that has delighted generations of visitors. The zoo recently earned rave reviews and record attendance at the Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular.   

The park also contains waterways, walks, Botanical Center, a Carousel Village, Museum of Natural History and Planetarium. The Bank of America City Center boasts wonderful ice skating downtown, featuring more ice than Rockefeller Center and the city's dynamic skyline as a backdrop.

History buffs will revel in the city's rich and varied architecture, which ranges from Colonial to Modern, as well as landmarks such as the first Baptist Church in America.
