  • Such a peaceful place! I enjoyed walking there, if you want to run don't put your earbuds on, because cars are passing by regularly. Swan point which is near the river is such a quiet place and has a nice view.
  • So beautiful and well maintained. I visit my grandmother there, she was a classy lady and deserved to be laid to rest in a beautiful location!
  • Is this morbid? It's a beautiful place along the river, great place for a quiet walk amid beautiful grounds.
  • A truly stunning garden cemetery. You could spend all day here and still not see the whole thing. No cameras allowed, however!
  • Quite pretty. I learned to drive here as a teen.

Where to stay in Providence

Most of the guest beds in Providence lie in and around downtown; this is the most convenient area to stay in during your visit. Right downtown you'll find a handful of large hotels from national chains. Rooms here can be pricey, but many offer sweeping views of Providence Harbor. Federal Hill features a few locally owned inns, bed and breakfasts, and small hotels in historical buildings. You'll find additional homey establishments around the State House just north of downtown and the College Hill area across the Providence River to the east. Avoid the South Providence area and East Providence across the Seekonk River.
