I grew up not far from Providence. While at one time I was dying to get out...every time we come back and visit we find Providence to be a real treat. Good food, scenic views, and great culture adds to the New England history. Try the Italian food on Federal Hill and make sure you have a couple of wieners "all the way" from New York Systems.

Providence is a nice little city, and it's getting better. In the past 15 years or so, the downtown has been re-invigorated and the recent re-routing of 195 has made traffic better (but still clogged at times). Downtown is just beautiful, especially at night.

This has to be one of the most underrated cities in the US.
Providence is gorgeous. The city has lovely architecture, plentiful green spaces, and a wonderful river walk. This is a great place to re-visit America's colonial past without leaving its modern urban comforts.
Though Providence has clearly had a troubled past and still seems to have some crime issues, the city is experiencing a renaissance. There are plenty of good restaurants and the downtown area has a number of nice boutiques, cafes, and galleries.
Well worth a visit and certainly more than just a stopping point between farther north and New York.
