When to fly
Summer is the high travel season in Providence and when most people book flights to Providence. The city's convenient location to the nearby beaches make it an easy city and beach escape for last-minute travellers. Summer is also when most of the students have left for the summer school break. However, many students stay around during the summer and pick up jobs at nearby restaurants, bars, or with famous WaterFire festivities.
Winter is cold. However, this is the best time to book cheap flights to Providence and discounted hotel accommodations. Since the city is relatively small, savvy travellers can get cheaper Providence flights and hotel rooms for a weekend getaway from other parts of the US during the winter time and still pack all the attractions into one visit.
Providence is Rhode Island's tiny capital city that packs a lot of punch. Thanks to Rhode Island’s proximity between Massachusetts and Connecticut, Providence is a quick one-hour drive from Boston or Hartford. Home to Brown University, Rhode Island School of Design, Roger Williams University, the famous Rhode Island WaterFire events and one of the best Italian neighbourhoods in New England, Providence packs a lot of activity into a small space.
Flights to Providence arrive at TF Green International Airport, although many travelers might find cheaper Providence flights via Boston’s Logan Airport or Hartford’s Bradley International Airport. Once you’re in Providence however, the options are endless. Take in a Pawtucket Red Sox game (the Boston Red Sox’s minor league division) or catch a concert at the newly renovated Dunkin Donuts Convention Center. If your flight to Providence falls during the summer, enjoy the famous Providence WaterFire displays while dining at one of the many riverfront restaurants.
It’s likely you’ll meet a few budding entrepreneurs and aspiring artists on your Providence flight; the city is home to 12 colleges and universities, keeping the energy youthful and the nightlife buzzing.
