2013 Downtown Providence Maps & Guides are here!

Downtown-Guide_CoverIt’s time to replace last year’s copy of the downtown neighborhood guides. The new ones are in! You can now find them at the Rhode Island Convention Center’s visitor information center, hotels, coffee shops, and plenty of other locations. Just look for the yellow, blue and gray covers, or download and print a copy here.

With several new businesses opening downtown in recent months, we expanded the booklets again. You’ll now see 30 pages including a centerfold shopping & dining map and a special fold-out parking map in the back. (Thank you to the incredible team at Sarah Rainwater Design for finding a way to squeeze everything in so beautifully!)

New listings include Alex and Ani, Bodega Malasana, Body & Soul Fitness, Circe, The Eddy, Ellie’s Bakery, Hanley’s Ale House, Marquee Cafe, Noon Design Shop, RISD Expose/2nd Life, Veggie Fun and Yogurt Queen.

We’ve also included listings for several new businesses that are expected to open within the next few months such as Birch, Figidini and Fratelli’s. With a generous sponsorship from the Providence Tourism Council, we printed a larger quantity, allowing us to distribute them to a wider audience.

The guides complement this website and match the listings within our online directory, which we update on a regular basis. Grab a guide and explore downtown!
