One of America's most famous walks in Providence is Benefit Street, lined with an impressive concentration of original colonial-style homes. The 'Mile of History' takes in all the well-restored buildings that were home to merchants and sea captains.

The street overlooking the city's waterfront also features churches and museums. The Providence Preservation Society cares for the area, providing information about the buildings and escorted tours from their office at 21 Meeting Street.
