A Tank Away
Providence offers history, culture, education, and a vibrant restaurant and arts scene
Ocean State’s chief city a great year-round getaway
Rhode Island’s capital city is one of the oldest in the nation, so it’s no surprise that history, art, culture, and education shape Providence’s 21st-century identity. A compact city of diverse neighborhoods Providence has plenty to offer in terms of museums and historic architecture, but please don’t call it stuffy. There’s a vibrant chef-owned restaurant scene, experimental art galleries, chic hotels, and a “Little Italy’’ neighborhood to rival Beantown’s.
