As you might have guessed given its name, Providence County is the most populated county in Rhode Island. Home of the city of Providence, the state capital, it’s a great place to call home if you want to get the urban lifestyle but there are plenty of great options for living outside the city as well. Many have described the city of Providence as a big city that acts like a small town. It also provides a central location for anyone who wants to travel between Boston and New York City. Life here is full of options, include the many festivals and events each year, the award-winning restaurants, and the historic sites that dot the landscape since Revolutionary times. The housing options are another bonus as everything from downtown condos to suburban single-family homes are plentiful here.
