So, your "Wildest Dreams" came true, and you scored tickets to see Taylor Swift's "The Eras Tour" at Gillette Stadium this weekend? Lucky you! Now it's time to think about the details. Like where are you going to "Stay Stay Stay"? Fortunately, we've got your answer.
Did you know Providence is only 26 miles from Foxborough and Gillette Stadium? Providence hotels are easily accessible from Rt. 95 and the train station (if you were smart enough to plan ahead and book a seat on the commuter rail). The Omni Hotel, Providence Marriott Downtown and other area hotels still have rooms available for the weekend. Whether you're looking for one night or three, you're sure to find the location that suits your needs. And, hey, while you're here, why not make a weekend of it?
Providence's compact downtown means you're always within walking distance to something fun. There's plenty of daytime activity to keep you busy before the shows, including fabulous restaurants and tours of Providence. You can even take a gondola ride through the heart of the city. But be sure to pack a "Cardigan" in case it gets chilly on the water.
Load up on tailgating snacks at Rory's Market or grab a coffee at The Landing for the trip to Gillette. It's just a short drive to Foxborough, but plan for traffic once you hit Route 1. Parking lots open at 2:30 p.m., and there are even designated lots for drop-off and pick-up if you've hired a "Getaway Car," um, ride share.
If you weren't lucky enough to get a ticket, you can "Shake It Off" on Sunday at Moonshine Alley's Taylor Swift Tailgate Party. They'll be screening concerts and music videos on the jumbo screen, serving T. Swift-inspired cocktails and giving away prizes for the best dressed Swiftie.
With Taylor's ties to R.I., who knows, she might even make an appearance downtown while she's in the area. "Long Story Short," Providence is the place to be this weekend. You'll have "The Best Day."
