"Providence - The Capitol City" Providence by Herkbert

Providence Travel Guide: 290 reviews and 499 photos


As Providence is the capitol of Rhode Island, you'll find the state house prominently located in the downtown area known as Smith Hill. The beautiful white marble building with the statue of the Independent Man perched on top of the dome can be seen as you approach the city from the surrounding highways, letting you know you have arrived in the capitol.

The area surrounding downtown contains many restaurants of all cuisines, entertainment and shopping facilities and diverse neighborhoods. Take some time to walk around and see the sights and taste the food.
