Area Information

Providence, the capital of Rhode Island, is more than

380 years old making it one of the oldest cities in the

United States. The city is a stunning showcase of well-

preserved historic buildings in Colonial, Federal,

Greek Revival, and Victorian design. The beautiful

landscape is also home to 7 universities and colleges,

including Brown University, Providence College, and

the world's largest culinary educator Johnson & Wales

University.                                                                 Photo Credit: Warwick CVB

Downtown Providence is compact with wonderful restaurants, shopping, and entertainment options within a short distance. The Rhode Island School of Design Museum is a dynamic cultural center located less than one mile from the Renaissance Providence Downtown Hotel. South of downtown, Roger Williams Park Botanical Center sits on an island. The Park was designed in 1878 and is on the National Register of Historic Places. The Botanical Center was completed in 2007 and with 23,000 square feet of greenhouse, it is the largest indoor garden display in New England.
