So, you scored tickets to see the Rolling Stones at Gillette Stadium on May 30 and "Wild Horses" couldn't keep you away? Lucky you! Now it's time to think about the details, like where are you going to stay? Before you run "Out of Time," we've got you covered!

Did you know Providence is only 26 miles from Foxborough and Gillette Stadium? Providence hotels are easily accessible from Rt. 95. The Omni Hotel, Providence Marriott Downtown and other area hotels still have rooms available. Whether you're looking for one night or making a weekend of it, you're sure to find a location that brings you "Satisfaction."

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. 

Load up on tailgating snacks and coffee (or what I like to call "Mother's Little Helper") at Caffe Nero or 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 3:30 p.m., and there are even designated lots for drop-off and pick-up if you've hired a "Black Limousine," um, ride share.

WaterFire Providence

If you weren't lucky enough to get a ticket, well, "You Can't Always Get What You Want." Skip the crowd at Gillette and head to Moonshine Alley or Moniker Brewing for live music from local bands. Don't forget to check the weekend events calendar, including a full WaterFire lighting on Saturday.

And, while the Rolling Stones have a slightly tumultuous past with Rhode Island, there's always a chance that they'll be "Waiting on a Friend" in Providence.

Events This Weekend
