For the young and young at heart

Sports

Providence and the surrounding area is great for sports fans. 

- Gillete Stadium, home of the Patriots, is a 1/2 hour away - closer than it is to Boston!

- Being a college town means lots of college sports like the Brown Bears.  Many Brown sporting events take place on their field on the East Side, in the heart of the eruv.

- The Providence Bruins, an affiliate of the Boston Bruins, play their home games at the Dunkin' Donuts Center in downtown Providence.

- The Pawtucket Pawsox, a triple A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox, play in nearby McCoy Stadium in Pawtucket.

Outdoors

Living in Providence combines the best of living in a city with year-round outdoor fun. 

Rhode Island boasts miles of beaches. 

The fishing here is amazing!

Sailing is accessible and affordable- even for the most ardent landlubber! 

In the Autumn, you can enjoy New England's famous Fall foliage. 

In the Winter, head downtown to the Alex and Ani City Center- which has one of the few outdoor city rinks in the country.  Also, you are only three hours away from some of the best ski resorts in the New England area.
