Get the door, it's the liquor store
While many cities have an east and a west — East Baltimore, East Boston, East Los Angeles — this cardinal... counterweight to Providence is actually just a cozy small town in disguise. Corner stores, walkable streets, parks, waterfront and more dining than you could ever hope to experience all await in this town of under 50,000 residents. There are plenty of reasons people call East Providence home. The city has continuously dedicated to self-improvement, for one. The East Providence Waterfront Commission and Planning Department (thank goodness for acronyms) has been working for nearly two decades to turn yesteryear’s waterfront industrial buildings and spaces into clean, appealing residences, businesses and zones for new industries. The 14 miles of coastline give a spectacular view of the Capitol across the Seekonk River, while on the eastern boundary, you stare across Central Pond into Massachusetts. Or heck, you could just walk into Massachusetts — East Providence’s eastern edge forms the border with its neighboring state. Drizly serves East Providence with the finest beers, wines and liquors, all for online delivery in under an hour. Enjoy.
