    Welcome to Providence! Thank you for joining us on today’s tour, Providence: The Renaissance City brought to you by ListenUp Audio.

    I’m Claire and I’ll be your guide. A few notes before we get started. This tour takes about an hour to complete, depending on how long you spend at each site. You can stop at any time and start again at the same spot later. If you’d like, you can put your phone in your pocket and just listen from here. I’ll be navigating and audio will automatically play when you get close to the next point of interest. If a site is closed or your path is blocked, don’t worry about it, just go around. The tour will pick up at the next location. And this is important: PLEASE make sure you stay aware of your surroundings at all times and obey all traffic signals.

    Okay, I think weʼre ready to get started. Take a look around. You should be standing in Waterplace Park. If so, letʼs begin!

    Welcome to Providence, the Creative Capital of Rhode Island. Founded in 1636 by a renegade preacher and named for God's own Providence, this New England city was settled with a policy of religious and political freedom and hasn't looked back since.
