Rhode Island’s capital city has undergone a renaissance of sorts in the past few years, starring in its own television show and earning recognition by CNN’s Money Magazine in 2000 and 2001 as “The Best Place to Live in the East”. The city is a mix of the old and new. Providence is famous for its beautifully preserved historic architecture throughout the city, with more buildings on the National Historic Registry than anywhere else. It is also home to Brown University, a three-centuries-old institution attracting students from all over the world. The “new” Providence features the Providence Place Mall, Riverwalk, outdoor skating center, convention center, and a wide assortment of fine restaurants.
