The Stunning City of Providence
Providence was named by founder Roger Williams because he was so awe-struck by the area's beauty and majesty that he believed such a location was an act of divine providence. Now 375 years later, college students, professionals, and families are falling in love with this gorgeous capital city on the mouth of the Providence River. Likewise, apartment living in this stunning city can be advantageous to people from all walks of life. Whether you're a student looking for a one bedroom within walking distance from campus, a professional who needs to live just off a public transportation route, or a family looking to soak up the culture and history in Providence, there are many apartment living options available and MyNewPlace.com has the tools you need to find exactly what you're looking for.
From the Beehive of Industry to the Creative Capital
Heavy manufacturing, silverware, and jewelry exportation in the mid-1800s led to early monikers including the "Beehive of Industry," but Providence is known as much for arts and culture today as it was for industry nearly 200 years ago. Leading the way is the highly acclaimed, award-winning Rhode Island School of Design. Now nicknamed the "Creative Capital," the city counts arts, creativity, and the corresponding culture as central to the long-term vision for the city.
An Educational Hotbed
In addition to the Rhone Island School of Design, Providence is the proud home of Ivy League school Brown University, Providence College, Johnson & Wales University, and Rhode Island College. So whether you're a student looking for an apartment for rent that's right on campus, or a family that simply enjoys the cultural benefits living near a university can have, you can find that ideal location with MyNewPlace. But in a city like this, you don't have to be enrolled to embark on a quest for education. Such a heavy saturation in colonial history means that a learning experience is at every corner. There are over 150 registered historic places in the city, many of which offer tours. Add in the Museum of Natural History and Planetarium, the local art galleries, and the parks, and you'll be immersed in rich American history before your bags are even unpacked!
Find the Right Neighborhood
Providence boasts numerous distinct neighborhoods, each with something different to offer. An apartment in the East Side means easy access to Brown University as well as choice cafes, restaurants, and shops. Living in the Jewelry District means you'll be close to beautiful India Point Park, and historic Davol Square. If you value proximity to the best in healthcare, there are apartments for rent in the South Side. Whatever the area, you'll still have quality museums, parks, restaurants, and entertainment nearby. And for those excursions that take you a little farther from home, there is an extensive public transit system.
Head out to the Game!
With a variety of professional and amateur athletics, even the most demanding sports nut will be appeased by the local talent. The American Hockey League's Bruins and the USA Rugby League's Rhode Island Rebellion are based in the city. Plus, just a half-hour drive northeast is Foxborough, Massachusetts, the site of Gillette Stadium and home of the National Football League's New England Patriots and Major League Soccer's New England Revolution. Prefer going to a college game? The Brown University Bears compete in over 30 sports including football, basketball, ice hockey, lacrosse, swimming, and tennis. You can get your fill of men’s basketball from both Brown and Providence college athletics as well.
