a day in providence

    Despite a modest 20-square-mile area, the city of Providence is so packed with destinations worth exploring, 24 hours does not come close to lending a sufficient amount of time to do, see, and taste it all.  It does, however, provide just enough time to be charmed beyond recovery.  Full disclosure: You may fall in love with this little city.  Consider yourself warned.

I also find it necessary to alert you to the fact that, Providence being the foodie mecca it is, you will be consuming an absurd amount of food during your (hypothetical) 24 hours here.  In fact, your visit to Providence will revolve mostly around incredibly delicious, alternatively prepared, farm fresh and locally-sourced food, in an extremely abundant supply.  So loosen your belt buckle a notch or two, and let’s dig in.

Night explorations have been top shelf, as of late.  Some of my favorite spots…

My backyard for rosé and s’mores. (and cheese)

The Grange for drinks and tapas. (re: more cheese)

Ogie’s for hot toddies and mayoral sightings.

The Rooftop at G Pub to see the top of the city up close.

Prospect Park to see the top of the city for afar.
