I think Providence could make this walk a little more appealing. It is in a great place, and Waterfire makes it better, but it could be cleaner and more inviting.
Located downtown near the museums and RISD. Great for strolling along and enjoying a pleasant summers day
a walking scenic area with lots of activities. Waterfire in season is an experience filled with people and attractions, food and drink, music. Very interesting. The walk leads to (or from) the Providence Place Mall. This is a nice safe way to go out for a walk.
Go shopping at the Providence Place mall during the day and spend your evening strolling downtown Providence during the evening hours! They have water fires on the river and it's just absolutely beautiful!
I used to live in the city before all the renovations, so this was a treat to actually wander around downtown, with the river rerouted through it. Not during a WaterFire (which is also another wonderful experience), it was very open and quiet, allowing for easy strolls, a little sitting and easy access to everything without needing transportation.
Providence River is a dirty thing...don't like the atmosphere...empty buildings and homeless people and graffii next to pricey expensive restaurants... just dont like it
We came to Providence when the waterfront was covered over with concrete. Now we have a lovely park, excellent restaurants, and best of all - Waterfire, an urban event that's not to be missed.
