  • Have experienced water fire many times over the years and they keep making it more amazing every year.  more »
  • A must see! Really cool walking around with fires. Getting in boat to do the tour up river and back was memorable.  more »
  • Waterfire is very lovely. It is also very crowded when you are trying to watch and stroll. It's probably best for tourists: I have seen it over ten times and have gotten the gist.  more »

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.
