Discover Providence On A Rhode Island Bus Charter
A Bus Rental for History Buffs, Friars Fans & Foodies
It took years and painstaking effort to turn this industrial bastion into one of the country’s most livable cities. Gone are the rundown lots and dilapidated buildings. Now there are parks, plazas and gondola rides along the Woonasquatucket and Providence Rivers, not to mention the 160-store Providence Place Mall and an outdoor skating rink. What hasn’t disappeared, are a wealth of historic sites and museums, the Roger Williams Park Zoo, the plays at Trinity Repertory and the eateries on Federal Hill.

Where to Eat, Drink & Play in Providence
Whether it’s a stroll along historic Benefit Street, shopping the boutiques on Thayer Street or watching Big East college basketball at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center, Providence offers an array of places to go and things to do. Below is just a sample of local attractions and points of interest.
- Entertainment & Amusement Parks — The amusements provided by Providence are varied. There’s no shortage of nightclubs and bars but Lupos Heartbreak Hotel has been focal point of Providence’s nightlife for decades. The likes of U2 and the Grateful Dead have performed at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center while Tommy Tune and James Taylor have graced the stage at the Providence Performing Arts Center. Feeling lucky? Twin River Casino is only a short drive outside the city with more than 4,500 slot machines and table games.
- Arts & Cultural — Boston may be bigger but Providence isn’t lacking when it comes to fine and performing arts, from the art collections at the Rhode Island School of Design to the Tony-award winning Trinity Repertory’s annual performance of A Christmas Carol. The Rhode Island Philharmonic Orchestra makes its home in nearby East Providence. And throughout the summer, Waterfire turns the three rivers running through downtown Providence into performance art and remains a must see signature event for visitors.
- Restaurants & Shopping — From funky shops on the city’s Eastside to the Haven Brothers diner near City Hall, Providence is a great place for anyone who loves to shop and eat. In the heart of Brown University, Thayer Street is lined with vintage clothing shops, bookstores and music shops. Head downtown to the luxury department stores anchoring The Providence Place Mall or explore the shops in the historic Arcade building. When it’s time for dinner, Federal Hill boats some of New England’s best restaurants.
- Golf Courses & Sports Venues —Rhode Island does not have a major sports team to call its own. Still, visitors can cheer on the Providence College Friars men’s basketball team against their Big East rivals at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center. Also called “The Dunk,” the arena is home ice to the Providence Bruins, the farm team for the NHL’s Boston Bruins. Head to nearby Pawtucket to watch tomorrow’s major league stars at McCoy Stadium, home to the Pawtucket Red Sox. Looking to play 18 holes? Triggs Memorial Golf Course is located in the heart of the city’s Mount Pleasant neighborhood.
- Historical Sites & Landmarks — Banished from Massachusetts, Roger Williams landed here in 1636 and the rest, as they say, was history. The monument honoring the man who founded the smallest state in the union overlooks the city’s downtown from its perch on Prospect Plaza. Gaze at historic homes on a stroll along Benefit Street. A portrait of George Washington painted by Gilbert Stuart hangs in the State House. Visit the grave of noted horror writer H.P. Lovecraft and the first Baptist church built in America.
- Parks & Outdoor Activities — From a zoo and botanical garden to sprawling areas with shady trees and green grass, Roger Williams Park has something for everyone. Waterplace Park, located in the heart of downtown, is edged by beautifully landscaped riverwalks and a series of venetian-style footbridges. The Providence Rink at the Bank of America City Center is twice the size of the skating rink in New York’s Rockefeller Center in Manhattan.
- Zoos & Aquariums — Nestled within 430-acres of Roger Williams Park is the award-winning zoo bearing the same name. The zoo features more than 100 species of animals from around the globe, including a snow leopard, kangaroos and polar bears.
- Other Points of Interest — If historic homes of former governors don’t spin your wheels, walk through the history of American cooking at Culinary Arts Museum at Johnson and Wales University. Be sure not to miss the Dinner at the White House exhibit or the Every Ready, a 1926 diner which operated in Providence.
