ABOUT THE COMMUNITY
Ranked #1 in Travel + Leisure Magazine’s 2014 America’s Favorite Cities Survey, praised by Architectural Digest as “The country’s best small city,” and named America’s Coolest City by GQ Magazine in 2015, Providence is the capital and most populous city in Rhode Island. Founded in 1636, it is one of the oldest cities in the United States and the third-largest city in the New England region after Boston and Worcester. Providence has a city population of 180,609 and is part of the Providence metropolitan area with an estimated population of 1,622,520. The region is considered part of the Greater Boston combined statistical area, the sixth largest in the country, with over eight million residents.
Once nicknamed the “Beehive of Industry,” Providence has rebranded itself as the “Creative Capital” to emphasize its educational resources (Brown University, Rhode Island School of Design, Providence College, Rhode Island College, Roger Williams University, and Johnson & Wales University) and arts community. Over the last twenty years, much of Providence has undergone a true civic renaissance, as political leaders and residents have propelled the city into an exciting place to work and live. City streets are packed with boutiques, hotels, renovated lofts, excellent restaurants, and art spaces.
In addition to being the home of Trinity Repertory Company, Providence has a remarkable arts and culture community that includes nationally renowned community arts center, AS220; the Rhode Island Philharmonic Orchestra; RISD Museum; Providence Athenaeum; Festival Ballet; and WaterFire. Providence is also home to several performing arts centers such as the Veterans Memorial Auditorium and the Providence Performing Arts Center, as well as a number of smaller theaters. The city’s music scene, centered on artist-run spaces, is well known in underground music circles.
The restaurant scene in Providence is second to none and a source of immense pride for residents, as the city has been consistently recognized as a top city for food. Because of Rhode Island’s proximity to the ocean, many restaurants, grocery stores, and farmer’s markets boast food sourced from the state itself, giving real meaning to the phrase “farm-to-table” dining. From bakeries and coffee shops, to bars and food trucks, there is no shortage of fun, excellent, cutting-edge dining in the city.
