Today, downtown Providence is a flourishing neighborhood. With dining, shopping and accommodations that are both unique and boutique, the city successfully builds upon a reputation as the "Creative Capital."
Preservation efforts and historic tax credits have jumpstarted redevelopment, allowing resourceful reuse of some of the city's most beautiful buildings. In towering and ornate buildings, once home to dry goods and department stores, you can now find residences, restaurants and galleries.
Events and attractions like WaterFire, ice skating, Gallery Night, Movies on the Block, and even bocce, ensure the city's heartbeat stays strong throughout the evening and all four seasons.
