Downtown Providence

Downtown Providence is the humming heartbeat of the city. Home to the city's tallest buildings, a wide range of dining and shopping options, and most recently a growing number of residences, downtown Providence has plenty to offer.

Scenically set upon three rivers (the same rivers in which the city was founded in 1636), the downtown area offers a walkable riverfront in a bustling cityscape. For more information on the city's history, a visit to the Roger Williams National Memorial and the Rhode Island State House are well worth a visit.
