Providence is the capital of Rhode Island State. It was among the very first cities to be established in America. Situated in Providence County, it is the biggest city in the state and the 3rd biggest within the New England region. The city itself has a modest population of approximately 178,000. Then again, it is the anchor city within the metropolitan statistical area (MSA), which has a population of 1.6 million. This makes it the 37th biggest metropolitan population within the United States. The MSA spills beyond the Rhode island border into the southern portions of Massachusetts.

The city of Providence is somewhat small when it comes to land area. It lies at the mouth of the Providence River on Narragansett Bay. Providence is characterized by seemingly erratic streets and a demographic in flux.

The city's founder, Roger Williams, was banished from the Massachusetts Bay Colony for religious reasons. He and his followers settled alongside the Providence River and founded the town during 1636. They named the community for the Providence of God, that Williams believed was responsible for providing him with a new site to be able to create a community. The city of Providence was called the "Beehive of Industry," because it was amongst the first cities in the U.S. to industrialize, producing silverware ad jewelry. Manufacturing is still a vital sector within Providence, but the local economy has shifted to service, health care and education industries. Eight hospitals and seven educational institutions are located in the city of Providence. The city of Providence is seeking to be called nowadays as the "Creative Capital".

The city has a big government services sector as the city of Providence serves as the state capital. The finance sector is also strong, with numerous smaller financial firms and some major financial companies situated there. The head offices of Citizens Bank are situated within the city.

Silverware and jewelry design and manufacturing are still dynamic industries. Providence's manufacturing sector these days makes such diverse products like for example plastic and rubber goods, instruments, fabricated metals and electrical equipment. Several businesses make supplies for the military. Rhode Island encourages business by offering generous job training tax credits to businesses. Fortune 1000 company Nortek Incorporated and Fortune 500 company Textron are headquartered in the city. GTECH's global headquarters are likewise situated here.

There is a really rich culture and arts sector within this modest-sized city. One of the top art schools in the US, known as the Rhode Island School of Design, is situated in the city of Providence. The school also houses an excellent Museum of Art. Additionally, the city has the Providence Arts Center, Providence Children's Museum, Roger William park and Zoo, Rhode Island Philharmonic, providence Dunkin' Donut Center and Trinity Repertory Company.

The city of Providence benefits from being the location of the famed College of Culinary Arts. The school is situated at the Providence campus of Johnson & Wales University. Culinary school graduates have founded several restaurants within Providence, giving Providence more eateries per capita than any other major city in the United States.
