The capital of the Ocean State, and dating back to 1636, is Providence, where Benefit Street is nicknamed the “Mile of History.” A stroll here is a walk through a handbook of classic American architecture; Colonial and Federal to Greek Revival and Victorian. Federal Hill is the Italian section with a wonderful array of bakeries, cafes and delicatessens. This city of 175,000 has an exceptional number of notable churches including the First Baptist Church of America, completed in 1775. Other highlights include the State Capitol building, a magnificent marble domed structure and Roger Williams Park with a chain of lakes, flower gardens and miles of walks and drives.
Where you stay is the heart of your holiday. Location reigns supreme but do you prefer resort facilities or unique and boutique? Historic and old world or modern and shiny?
We aim to present choices across the spectrum but there are many hundreds of places to stay and not room to feature them all. Do speak to your Bon Voyage travel consultant and click the video for our take on this important topic.
We would rate the Bellagio as one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. Fabulous, glitzy, exciting. We loved having breakfast at the poolside café... one of our best experiences ever. If it hadn't been for you we wouldn't have had the suite or cabana and we loved them. We both agreed that the hotel was the best for us and you had suggested that so well done!Leonore & Mike Rumford
