Cities and larger towns

Providence is the largest city in Rhode Island with approximately 172,000 inhabitants. As part of urban renewal, Providence became one of the prettiest cities in New England. The downtown area with numerous old buildings is a listed building, which is a specialty in the USA. The areas around Brown University with many cafés and bars are also worth a visit.

Warwick (Providence Metropolitan Area)
Warwick is the second largest city in Rhode Island and has approximately 85,000 residents. The city is located south of Providence and is the location of TF Green Airport, which is Rhode Island’s largest airport.

Just under half of the approximately 44,000 inhabitants of this city are of French or French Canadian origin. This is why Woonsocket is often referred to as the “French-speaking city in America”.

In the late 19th century, Newport was the summer residence of many wealthy New Yorkers, which can easily be seen today in the typical image of the town. The impressive villas by the sea, which are simply referred to as “summer cottages”, make it appear as if they want to outdo each other and are still admired by numerous visitors from outside and sometimes also from the inside. New Port now has almost 25,000 inhabitants and is also well known for the music festivals and the many yachts that take place here.
