“Could be nicer!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

I think Providence could make this walk a little more appealing. It is in a great place, and Waterfire makes it better, but it could be cleaner and more inviting.

“beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2013

a walking scenic area with lots of activities. Waterfire in season is an experience filled with people and attractions, food and drink, music. Very interesting.
The walk leads to (or from) the Providence Place Mall. This is a nice safe way to go out for a walk.

“Great Nightlife”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013

Go shopping at the Providence Place mall during the day and spend your evening strolling downtown Providence during the evening hours! They have water fires on the river and it's just absolutely beautiful!

“Providence with Water View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 November 2012

I used to live in the city before all the renovations, so this was a treat to actually wander around downtown, with the river rerouted through it. Not during a WaterFire (which is also another wonderful experience), it was very open and quiet, allowing for easy strolls, a little sitting and easy access to everything without needing transportation.
