downtown map cover 2014Everything you need to know about downtown Providence can be found in one place! Stop by the Visitor Info Center in the rotunda at the RI Convention Center to grab the 2014/15 edition of the downtown map & guide, produced by the Providence Downtown Improvement District with support from the Providence Tourism Council. Look for copies at downtown shops, restaurants and hotels within the next few days. You can also download a PDF copy here!

Created by Sarah Rainwater Design, the expanded guides include a centerfold map that highlights restaurants, as well as a fold-out parking map on the back cover. They also now have separate smaller-scale maps featuring shops and cultural destinations to help guide you through the neighborhood.

New listings include Aurora, Cafe La France, Downcity Outfitters, Flan (coming soon), G Pub, Ken’s Ramen, Rosalina, Rooftop at Providence G, and the bars and eateries in the Dean Hotel: Bolt Coffee, Boombox, Faust, and the Magdalenae Room. New businesses in the Arcade are listed separately, on page 16.
