Welcome to Downtown Providence

Downtown Providence Is Your Town

Downtown Providence is the heart of the city, filled with world-renowned restaurants, super-cool shopping, stunning historic architecture, and an assortment of fun things to do. Stroll along the riverfront and then explore Downtown's cobblestone streets. Be on the lookout for the vibrant murals and public art pieces dotted throughout Providence. Make a stop at the Pedestrian Bridge for a spectacular view of the city and a requisite photo. Downtown is your town. And in your town, you're always welcome.

Downtown Is Damaris' Town

As an executive at one of the city’s top hotels and a busy mom, there is nothing Damaris can’t handle. A rooftop table with a view? No problem. A last-minute meal to bring home? Sure. Cool events? Yup. Hot shoes? Right up her alley. Damaris has all the answers, all in one place — Downtown Providence.

Downtown Is Omar's Town

Downtown Is Bobby's Town

Everyone’s happy to see Bobby walking around Downtown in his yellow shirt. He’ll help you with directions or find a rack for your bike. He’s checking in with businesses or walking the daycare kids out to recess. On weekends, meet Bobby at Burnside Park, where his youngest son loves to play.
