Holiday cheer is in high demand this year. In Providence and throughout Rhode Island, you'll find lots of ways to find that fa-la-la feeling. Take a spin around the BankNewport City Center on ice skates or in an ice bumper car. Power through your holiday shopping list during Downtown's Open Air Saturdays or check out the eclectic shops on Thayer, Hope and Wickenden streets. Big-name stores can be found at Providence Place or nearby Cranston's Garden City Center.
Warm up with a hearty dish at any one of the area's renowned restaurants, or take it to go so you can stay cozy and enjoy a delicious meal in the comfort of your own home. Turn your evening plans into dinner and a show (a virtual one, of course) with a screening of Trinity Rep's 2020 production of "A Christmas Carol."
And remember, holiday shopping is a total breeze when you order gifts online or purchase a gift card from some of your favorite local shops.
