Providence may be the capital of the smallest state, but there is nothing tiny about the cultural punch this city packs. Whether you’re winding along the river’s edge or enjoying Little Italy, this is one urban area that is most enjoyable by foot. And don’t forget the impressive architectural, historical and artistic components that make Providence great.
