Little Rhody is packed with 400 miles of coastline and 20 percent of the country's historic landmarks. Newport is the sailing capital of the world, home to the famed Gilded Age mansions. Providence's celebrated restaurants, award-winning theatre, and vibrant arts scene is enhanced by an elaborate river-walk. Block Island's natural beauty beckons you to unwind. Whether you choose South County's pristine beaches, East Bay's magnificent coastal bikeway, footsteps through history in Blackstone Valley, or shopping in Warwick, you'll experience authentic Rhode Island.
With a thriving arts district, a commitment to historical preservation, and a sophisticated nightlife, Providence offers a variety of entertainment options. The Federal Hill neighborhood is brimming with restaurants, galleries and specialty stores. Tony award-winning Trinity Repertory Company draws throngs of theatergoers into the city. One of Providence's most popular cultural events is WaterFire, a multi-sensory art installation, highlighted by a series of bonfires installed on the three rivers of downtown Providence. Nearby Warwick has more than 39 miles of breathtaking coastline, including beaches.
There's also plenty to attract the eye of even the most discerning shopper. Providence Place offers visitors a mall with more than 100 shopping, dining and entertainment options. Funky urban chic can be found at one of the many boutiques on Thayer and Wickenden streets, both on the city's tony East Side. Warwick is Rhode Island's retail capital, with a 5.3 mile stretch of road containing more than 250 stores, from retail giants to specialty shops.
