Enjoy Providence during your visit to Brown

Information for Accepted Students and their Families

We are delighted that you will join us for Summer@Brown. We look forward to welcoming you to Providence, our home city, and to our beautiful state, Rhode Island. As is often said, ‘good things come in small packages’ and this fits our city and state perfectly. Providence is historic and hip, with wonderful restaurants, summer celebrations, magnificent mansions, and 39 miles of coastline just a short drive away.

There are many things to capture your interest on a visit to Brown. Before you make your plans, be sure to check out what’s happening in Providence, Newport and around Rhode Island.

WaterFire – A special Providence attraction

Every summer WaterFire captures the imagination and inspires millions of visitors with a display of eighty sparkling bonfires that magically transform Providence’s downtown riverfront, with the braziers alight 20 minutes after sundown and fires burning until after midnight. Flickering firelight reflects on the water and silhouettes torchlit vessels, while aromatic wood smoke and enchanting music captures the senses of all who enjoy these evenings. For dates and more information, visit Waterfire.org.

Providence Restaurant Weeks

Enjoy local cuisine, locally-sourced food and this special opportunity to dine in Providence. Nearly 100 restaurants across Rhode Island will offer three-course, prix fixe lunches and dinners. Participating restaurants and their menus will be posted in advance on www.ProvidenceRestaurantWeeks.com.
