Providence, the capital of Rhode Island, is a bustling city at the mouth of the Providence River. Its central location makes Providence a great place to use as your base while you explore the many surrounding areas. When you�re ready to start making travel arrangements, search for flights to Providence at Orbitz.com, where you can also reserve your hotel room and rental car.
The T.F. Green Airport (2000 Post Road, Warwick), named for former Rhode Island governor Theodore F. Green, is the primary airport serving the greater Providence area. The airport is located less than twelve miles south of the downtown area with easy access via I-95. The Airport Taxi RI (401-737-2868) offers ground transportation into the city for roughly $35, while Cozy Cab (401-846-1500) offers shuttle service to the Newport area. The MBTA Commuter Rail (800-392-6100) offers weekday transportation to the city for $5, or you can take a RIPTA bus (800-244-0444) for $1.75. If you plan on staying at an area hotel, call ahead to find out if the hotel provides free shuttle service from the airport. Depending on the mode of transportation you choose, your ride to the downtown area should take roughly twenty minutes or more. All of the major car rental companies service the airport, and you will find their customer service counters near the baggage-claim area.
Summers are warm in Providence, with warm temperatures soaring into the low 80s and cold temperatures dipping into the low 20s. If your travel brings you to Providence during the winter, pack appropriate snow gear, because the city averages almost three feet of snow each year. Lightweight clothing that you can layer and a light jacket or sweater are appropriate for the remaining seasons. One of the most popular city events is WaterFire, which takes place along the river every other Saturday from May through October, and it is a must-see event for anyone visiting the city. During the day, you can take a gondola ride along the river or simply stroll along Riverwalk or Waterplace Park. Movie buffs can fill their time by scouting out the shooting locations of the many films that have been completely or partially filmed in Rhode Island. A total of forty-three major motion films have been shot in and around Providence, including Me, Myself and Irene, The Great Gatsby, Meet Joe Black, There�s Something About Mary, Dumb and Dumber, and Amistad.
From water activities to the performing arts, attractions in Providence abound. Whether you�re visiting for the first time or are planning a return trip, be sure to visit Orbitz.com. You�ll be able to quickly and easily find affordable airfare on flights to Providence and compare prices on hotel rooms and rental cars.
Summer in Providence is one of the city’s busiest times of year, with visitors coming not only for regular nightly events like WaterFire and the Providence Roller Derby but also daytime exploration of Narragansett Bay by kayak or sailboat. Surfers and beachgoers can head south to Narragansett Town Beach, Newport, and Block Island—less than an hour away. From June through September, temperatures start in the mid-70s, with the warmest days reaching the mid-80s.
Autumn weekends bring leaf-peepers in droves, and with schools and universities back in full force, Providence’s social calendar is packed with athletic and cultural events. The average temperatures drop dramatically as the months fall to winter—70s in September, 60s in October, 50s in November, and 40s in December.
Late spring, late summer, and early fall are probably the best months for visiting Providence, with races like the Caremark CVS Downtown 5K in September, the Cox Providence Rhode Races in May, and the Providence Rock n’ Roll Half Marathon in August—each with nearly 10,000 participants from around the country. Not a runner? Try the annual Spring Flower and Garden Show in February, the International Film Festival and Newport Jazz Festival in August, and the Seafood Festival in September.
Winter is probably the least favorable, though skating on Kennedy Plaza is twice as much fun as skating on Rockefeller’s Plaza—it’s twice the size.
