Visit Providence.

When you deplane at Green Airport, you’re just six miles south of Providence and the start of your New England adventure. Whether you choose to take the bus into town or rent a car, it’s easy to get going. This early leader in manufacturing may have shifted toward service industries and higher education, but there’s still plenty of hustle and bustle and sights to explore.

Consider starting with a tour of Historic Providence. Take advantage of a walking tour of historic landmarks or create an itinerary all your own. As one of the country’s earliest cities, the area is steeped in history and lore. There are tours by area (downtown, East Side, and West Side), of the jewelry district, and a Black history walking tour. Fans of supernatural horror will enjoy exploring Providence’s connections to H.P. Lovecraft, who was born and lived most of his life in the city. There’s a Lovecraft walking tour, and, depending on the time of your visit, you may be able to participate in the biannual NecronomiCon.

If you’d rather explore historic Providence indoors, tour one of several historic and landmark homes in town. The Lippitt House Museum, Arcade Providence, Blithewold Mansion, Arnold House, and Newport Mansions of the Preservation Society are all excellent options.

If modern-day Providence is more your speed, there’s plenty to do in each of the city’s 25 neighborhoods that is new and now instead of echoes of the past. The RISD Museum, affiliated with the renown Rhode Island School of Design, has an eclectic modern art collection. Check out what they’re doing at the award-winning Trinity Repertory Company or the Providence Performing Arts Center if you’re looking for live entertainment. When it’s time to eat, consider checking out one of several ethnic neighborhoods for authentic dishes, or take advantage of being in a city with more restaurants per capita than anywhere else in the country.

See what you’ll discover when you visit the Renaissance City. Southwest Airlines flies to Providence often, which makes it easy to plan your next visit. Of course, having a memorable trip to the Ocean State is about more than finding cheap airfare to Green Airport.
