Welcome To Providence!
House moving can be stressful so one of America’s favorite moving companies is here to make your move to Rhode Island as worry-free as possible. As you have probably grown quite sick of packing, getting ready to hit the road for Rhode Island, here are some things to look for in your new hometown, Providence, RI.
Education: Providence is home to seven institutes of higher learning, including the world-famous Rhode Island School of Design. Most famously, Rhode Island is home to Brown University, one of the premier Ivy League schools in the country. Brown University is a one of the most visited parts of Providence and is the second-largest employer in the city.
Food: Another famous Providence university is Johnson & Wales, famous for producing restaurant and hospitality graduates. Many of these graduates have stayed in Providence to open restaurants, giving Providence the highest number of restaurants, per capita, in the United States.
History: Rhode Island was one of the original 13 colonies of the United States, leaving Providence with a ton of history. Founded on the banks of the Providence River, the city was first settled by Pokanoket Tribe of the Wampanoag Nation. In 1636, an English protestant named Roger Williams created a refuge for religious minorities and later founded America’s first Baptist church. The city sprung out of the religious freedom created there and a partnership with Indian tribes, which Williams was a strong advocate for.
