Providence Vacations

You’ve always believed the adage, “Good things come in small packages,” and you have yet to be proven wrong. From your young niece’s room-filling laugh to the decadent ganache in your favorite truffle, it’s the little things in life that bring you joy. Your trip to Providence will do the same. Blink and you might miss the state of Rhode Island and its capital city, but it’s a mistake to skip the charms of this 1,200-square-foot slice of the United States. With world-class universities like Brown and Johnson & Wales, tons of museums, and events year-round, Providence is smart, fresh, and entertaining for all ages—so pack your bags for a fabulous solo getaway or a fun-filled family vacation in Providence.

Top Hotels in Providence

Before you get carried away planning your itinerary, curate your own custom Providence vacation package from our selection of airfare and hotels. Here is a list of a few guest favorites:

  • Hilton Providence: Located on the west side of downtown Providence, this Hilton is within walking distance to some of Rhode Island’s premier arts and entertainment venues, including Dunkin’ Donuts Center, Trinity Repertory Company, and Rhode Island Convention Center. Plan an evening on the town, complete with a gourmet dinner and cocktails in the hotel restaurant.
  • Omni Providence Hotel: If you’re planning a trip around an event at the Rhode Island Convention Center, stay at this adjacent hotel and mix work with ample leisure. When you aren’t taking in all that downtown Providence has to offer, soak in the indoor pool and enjoy a delicious meal in the two hotel restaurants. And if you need to dress to impress for a big meeting, leave your pantsuit with the dry-cleaning service for sprucing up.
  • Hotel Providence: With an easy walk to Providence Performing Arts Center, Trinity Repertory Company, and Dunkin’ Donuts Center, you may not spend much time in your hotel room. But when you do have a moment to relax at Hotel Providence, sample the gourmet menu in the restaurant or lounge on a pillowtop bed with room service.
  • Best Western Airport Inn: Like other Best Westerns, this hotel is conveniently located and supremely comfortable. Stay in Warwick, home to T.F. Green Airport for an easy commute, as well as an array of nearby attractions, including the Warwick Museum of Art and Ocean State Theatre in Warwick and all the sights in nearby Providence. Just don’t leave before a complimentary breakfast, dear traveler.

Fun for Everyone

Providence vacations have something for every age. Check out the city’s excellent Children’s Museum, or its huge, colorful Hasbro Playground. Roger Williams Park is a major attraction where you could spend days exploring the zoo, natural history museum, botanical gardens, and planetarium. Next, step off the beaten path to see the evolution of all things food-related at the Culinary Archives, or trace the steps of Edgar Allen Poe down Benefit Street, which is lined with houses and mansions dating back to the 18th century.

Providence is also a great place to go back to school—yes, even on vacation. Watch international cultures develop before your eyes as you browse the collections at the Rhode Island School of Design Museum of Art. RISD is known the world over for its innovation and creativity, and this museum celebrates centuries of fellow artists and designers from every corner of the map. Near downtown, wander through the historic campus of Brown University, founded in 1764. The university is a smorgasbord of beautiful New England landmarks, including John Carter Brown Library and the iconic Van Wickle Gates, but don’t worry; there’s no pop quiz on this vacation in Providence, RI.

Festivals and Events

Don’t get the idea that Providence is all academia—the locals sure know how to celebrate and relax, too. In the summer, the Providence River comes alive during WaterFire, a gathering of flickering fire sculptures accompanied by people spinning flames in boats as they glide along the water. Stroll the paths of Waterplace Park or ride a graceful gondola to see the action up close. In the winter, drive just 40 miles to Newport for “New England's Largest Winter Extravaganza,” the Newport Winter Festival. Take an ice sculpting lesson along Main Street, then warm up with a spiked hot chocolate at the Hot Drink Contest.

A grand adventure awaits. Save on your dream vacation when you book package deals in Providence with Travelocity. Our price-matching promise guarantees you’ll get the best price right here, no matter where you find it first.
