America's Best Cities for New Year's Eve
Wendy Ball & Dara Albanese
No. 18 Providence
In the No. 2 town for theater and performance art, it makes sense that Providence’s New Year’s party, Bright Night Providence, is arts-driven. And if you don’t want crowds, this is a great town for hanging out in a hole-in-a-wall: the Rhode Island city ranks third for its neighborhood joints, and its burgers and pizza come in at No. 3, too.
