    Great for families, a date, small and and large groups. Something for everyone with the beautiful fires, food, drinks, performing artists, boat rides (for hire) and so much more.  more »

    This was a very nice experience on the water. Music, fire, characters under the stars. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would recommend it to anyone looking for entertainment.  more »

    If you are in Providence when this happens, make sure you head down for the show. Live music and entertainment followed by the log fires along the river.  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.
