Warwick, Rhode Island

Founded in 1642, our historic host city, Warwick, is the second largest city in Rhode Island. It is located approximately 12 miles south of downtown Providence, 63 miles southwest of Boston, and 171 miles northeast of New York City. Warwick is home to Rhode Island's main airport, T.F. Green, which serves both domestic US and international destinations, and as a reliever for Boston's Logan Airport. For more information on local attractions, dining, events and shopping, visit Warwick's official tourism website.

A little more information to share

Federal Hill

It may actually be illegal to visit Rhode Island without a stop to Providence's historic Federal Hill, the "Little Italy" of Rhode Island.

Federal Hill offers some of the finest restaurants in the country, and calling ahead for reservations is highly recommended. There are also plenty of coffee shops, bakeries, live outdoor entertainment, and great people-watching.
Read more about Federal Hill and its many restaurants. And no visit to Federal Hill is complete without visiting Venda Ravioli to take home some of their fresh pasta and Italian groceries. It will ruin you for any other ravioli experience going forward.
