Providence is the capital and the most populous city of the U.S. state of Rhode Island, and one of the first cities established in the United States. Once nicknamed the "Beehive of Industry," Providence began re-branding itself as the "Creative Capital" in 2009 to emphasize its educational resources and arts community.

Providence's climate is between a humid continental climate and a humid subtropical climate, with warm summers, cold winters, and high humidity year-round. The influence of the Atlantic Ocean keeps Providence, and the rest of the state of Rhode Island, warmer than many inland locales in New England.
