WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT

Thanks to an arts-driven ur­ban re­nais­sance in the 1980s and 1990s, Prov­i­dence is now un­stop­pable. This vi­brant, im­mi­grant-rich uni­ver­sity town has Colo­nial and in­dus­trial New Eng­land his­tory, gal­leries and per­for­mance venues, cool mu­se­ums (like the Prov­i­dence Chil­dren’s Mu­seum), a shore­line bike trail, a hop­ping restau­rant scene, beloved lo­cal base­ball and hockey teams, and a spec­tac­u­lar city park.

DON’T MISS

Waterfire is the hottest spec­ta­cle in town. Sev­eral times a month (usu­ally on Satur­days) from late May to Novem­ber, the city’s three rivers are lit at sun­set with nearly 100 bon­fires and an­i­mated with haunt­ing mu­sic and light­ing, fire dancers, torch-lit boats, and singing gon­do­liers.

EAT & SLEEP

Right down­town, Luxe Burger of­fers a fun DIY menu with a bog­gling ar­ray of burger, cheese, top­ping, and bun op­tions ($9 and up). A chil­dren’s menu keeps op­tions sim­ple and throws in a side, drink, and dessert for $8. There’s even a dog­gie menu! Prov­i­dence Mar­riott Down­town has a ma­jor kid-pleaser: the only in­door-out­door pool in the city. Rates start at $179 a night. GET MORE INFO
