3 Places to see in Providence

Hi readers!

Providence is full of history and charm. I really feel as if I’ve only scratched the surface of all there is to discover in this area. Today, I wanted to share a sneak peak of 3 places with you guys. I have been to all of these places, but need to schedule an actual tour to learn all about the history and details of these beautiful buildings.

#1.-  The Rhode Island State House. This building is iconic to Providence. Here is a sneak peak of the inside:

They offer free 50 minute long guided tours, 5 times a day, 5 days a week! Go here to schedule one: https://sos.ri.gov/publicinfo/tours/

#2.- The Providence Biltmore. This building is stunning on the outside and inside!

This Hotel has a Starbucks and a McCormick & Schmick’s in the Lobby, as well as a Spa, and almost 300 guest rooms. They also are known for throwing some really rad weddings. You can check them out here: http://www.providencebiltmore.com/

#3.- The RISD Fleet Library. Located in the heart of Providence this is a great resource!

This library provides hours of reading and inspiration. I love sitting here and gazing out the window overlooking downtown Providence. You can check out their website here: http://library.risd.edu/


I love being a tourist in my own town, it’s a great way to escape and feel like I’m somewhere else.

    Totally! I think I will take you up on that! I have lost count the times I have gone but every time it feels new. OMG and you’re right about Nava. I def have to go get some of their jewelry for Spring. Actually, my husband got one of his favorite dress shirts from there!

    I love to go to the RISD museum ( free on Sundays!). They have amazing local and international artists there. I also love Nava (vintage and new) clothing on Thayer street. I could buy the entire store!
