Providence RI has just been ranked in the top 3 Best U.S. Cities by Travel & Leisure Magazine in their November 2010 issue. Little old Rhody is stepping on some big toes out there around the country now! With over 35 cities from San Francisco to New York in competition on many categories, I can say with great assurance to anyone coming here- they chose their city well.
Providence RI came in at #2 for the best Theatre and Performing Arts venue after New York City- that is just amazing and wonderful... See what most people out of area do not know is that we have Trinity Repertory Company here which is renown for their stage productions. Remembering that Brown University has an acclaimed playrighting school many of the graduate playrights remain locally and do their writing for Trinity Rep. In addition, Providence has the Providence Performing Arts Theatre which attracts productions from around the country and is well thought of. It still is great kudos to this city to rank this highly among the competition.
Providence RI ranked #3 in two other categories. One is for the best neighborhood food joints and cafes in the United States and the other was for the best pizza places. No surprise on either of these...we have one of the best nationally known culinary school in Johnson & Wales University in Providence RI. Johnson & Wales attracts students from 89 countries around the world so the ethnicity of all these students is bound to flow out to the restaurants they work in and create in the capitol city. Also, we have an incredibly large Italian population in Providence and the finest Italian restaurants to eat in too. Of course we have great pizza- visit Caserta's! Ahh, also Providence was ranked as the #3 best city to visit in the Fall season...of course, we have Waterfire!
Hear me, hear me...we beat out New Orleans too! So consider Providence RI in your next cross country and East coast travels...Providence RI ranks high on best U.S. cities by Travel & Leisure Magazine in November.
