Once an operative seaport, it has grown into a memorable remnant and a progressive addition to the east coast’s more lofty metropolitan areas.

Progressive colleges such as Providence University and Rhode Island School of Design give the town a youthful, forward-thinking air. The campus region, lined with coffee shops and vintage stores, is full of life when school is in session.
