Male style magazine GQ has dubbed Providence the nation’s ‘coolest city’, only months after it was named ‘America’s favorite city’ by Travel + Leisure.

This intimidatingly smart place (Brown University, Rhode Island School of Design, H.P. Lovecraft) wants to party … It’s like the whole town is screaming in hedonistic chorus: “LOOK HOW SEXY WE’RE GETTING.”

“[and after the party you can] walk off your hangover at Swan Point Cemetery, one of the most gorgeous boneyards in the history of death. Lovecraft is buried here, and rumors of midnight Wiccan rituals are accepted as fact by locals. Your next stop is the RISD Museum of Art, a light-flooded space that houses a pleasantly random collection (Hockney, Serra, ancient Chinese lion-dogs) and is way more impressive than you’d expect a midsize university museum to be.”
