Providence combines the best of a quaint New England town with the amenities and hip sophistication of a big city. Acclaimed restaurants, a vibrant arts and culture scene, and beautifully preserved historic architecture combine to make Providence a destination for inspiration.

Easily accessed via Interstate 95, Providence is a 50-minute drive from Boston and a three-hour drive from New York City. Warwick’s Green Airport (PVD) is a 10-minute drive from Providence and offers an average of 100 nonstop daily flights, intercity bus transportation, and connection to commuter rail service. Boston’s Logan Airport (BOS) is located less than 50 miles from Providence. Peter Pan‘s 10 daily departures provide bus service directly from Logan to downtown Providence, and Amtrak and commuter rail service are available from Boston.

Providence is accessible by rail via Amtrak’s Northeast Regional route (Boston – Providence / Springfield – Hartford – New York – Washington, DC – Roanoke / Richmond – Norfolk / Newport News – Virginia Beach). It is also reachable by Greyhound Bus.
