New to the city and wondering where to live?

Providence is a highly diverse town, with a vibe and flair to suit pretty much any lifestyle. Whether you want a posh urban flat with glass walls and dramatic skyline views, a charming historic apartment stepping out to cobblestone and gas lanterns, or a renovated loft with 16 foot ceilings and exposed brick, I recommend taking a couple of days to explore before signing a lease. To discover the many different faces of Providence before settling into your new home, try the following TOP 5 STROLLS and weave in and out of the surrounding streets to see the various residences to choose from.

1. Wickenden St.-Explore this main artery of Fox Point with quirky curiosity shops, antique stores and pubs. Close to Brown, some of the oldest plaque homes in the city are here, mixed in with a myriad of 2 and 3 decker multi-family homes with many apartments to choose from. Our offices are located on the corner of Wickenden St. and Benefit St. Come in to see what’s available for rent!

2. Benefit St.-Time travel along the old brick sidewalks, with gas lanterns, ancient trees, city views and a couple of ‘First’ National Churches. Character and apartments abound.

3. River Walk-Take a stroll Downcity along the Providence River boardwalk, soak in the town’s architectural personality, and get a sense for why we’re called Venice’s sister city. Several of the taller buildings contain condos, which are available for rent and offer great city views.

4. Atwells Ave.-Check out a slice of RI’s cultural heritage and many of the best restaurants in town. An eclectic mix of spices, aromas & flavors, boutiques, tattoo parlors, and art galleries from Italy to China to Jamaica and back again. It may surprise you how many places there are to live in this high-energy urban center.

5. Blackstone Blvd., Wayland, Hope Village-Grab your Nikes and head to the East Side for a jog along the Boulevard. Two hundred year old trees, La crème de la crème of Providence estates, and a solid cross section of locals getting their exercise. At the Eastern end of the Boulevard, make your way along Butler Ave. to the established residential neighborhood, Wayland Square. At the Western end, up Hope St. you’ll find what locals affectionately call ‘Hope Village,’ with lots of apartments on and off Hope St. as well as shops and restaurants. Miriam hospital is in this vicinity for those of you who are residents and nurses.

Locals tend to drive around town, but try these strolls and I think you’ll find Providence to be a very walkable city. Enjoy!
