Market Overview

Providence is the vibrant economic capital of the state. A diverse make-up of neighborhoods like Federal Hill and East Providence add to the flavor of the city.

Providence’s economy is built upon three powerful industries: Health services, tourism and manufacturing. Health Services is the state’s leading industry. Tourism is Rhode Island’s second largest industry, supporting 50,000 jobs and producing tourism related sales, which topped $6.8 billion in 2010. Close by, Newport is home to world famous mansions, The Tennis Hall of Fame, and beautiful beaches. The southern beaches of Westerly also serve as busy tourist hubs.
