Providence isn’t known for its shopping scene, but there’s still plenty to peruse while you’re here. For premium shopping, the Providence Place mall is the place to go. The state’s largest shopping venue and home to around 200 retail stores — including department stores Nordstrom and Macy’s — Providence Place also has dining and entertainment venues. Alongside retailers like Tiffany & Co., Coach, the Apple Store, Sephora, Ann Taylor and J. Crew is an IMAX Theatre, great for when you need to take a break. For a more local shopping experience, head to downtown’s Westminster Street where you can find boutique clothing shops, designer stores and art galleries.
