Wednesdays on Weybosset - Episode 2

Hey friends and visitors! Hope you're all having a great Saturday. 

If you didn't already know, we released our 2nd Wednesdays on Weybosset this week and it was a super fun one. We sat down with Alan Chille, the General Manager of Providence Performing Arts Center (PPAC). Alan gave us a tour of the theatre and went into the history of PPAC and its evolution over the years. I've been to this theatre once before when I was very young and same with my partner Mike but we are looking to go again very soon. This place is incredible and we highly recommend going to an upcoming show whether you've been before or not. They have some amazing shows, the location is great, and the staff are very friendly. Check out the video below, subscribe to our YouTube, follow us on Facebook, and go check out PPAC at 220 Weybosset Street in downtown Providence!

Wednesdays on Weybosset

Hey friends!

If you follow our Facebook or Instagram, you might have seen a new project we're starting that we're super excited about. It's called Wednesdays on Weybosset. Our office is on Weybosset street and there are countless businesses near us. Every Wednesday starting April 4th, we are going to post short 30 second to 1 minute videos about local businesses in the area. We will interview the owners or an equivalent and get a brief spotlight into what they do.

Mark your calendars for April 4th and stay tuned! It's going to be a lot of fun and we can't wait to start this. If you didn't see the video and want to see it, check it out below. If you are a business owner in the area and want to be featured, or if you have questions about this project, or you just want to say hi, email us at hi@focusforwardmedia.com! We are looking forward to this and hope you are too! Have a great day.

3 Great Sunset Spots in Providence

Most people love a good sunset, right? We know we do! So we decided to put together a list of 3 spots in Providence to catch a nice sunset. 

1. Providence Place garage 

Parking in the garage less than 2 hours is free! Which should be plenty of time to snap a few nice shots of the sunset and get out of there. Go up to almost any floor, the higher the better, and go to the side of the garage looking over I-95. You'll have a great view of the Promenade, 95, and some buildings in the distance. It's a pretty decent spot, easy to get to, and free! (as long as you don't stay more than 2 hours)

2. Waterplace Park

This spot is right across Providence Place Mall, so again you could park in the garage. Sometimes there is street parking around the corner or on a side street but it's not hard to get to. There's great views on the upper area and you can walk along Finance Way to see some different views, or you can walk down the stairs to get to the river area as well. 

3. Prospect Park (Prospect Terrace Park)

We saved the best for last! This is a great spot and you might already know of it, but if you don't, we highly recommend checking it out. People go here to watch the sunset, do yoga, and even to propose! 

Prospect park is awesome. It's on College Hill. There's a lot of parking right on the sidewalk and on side streets as well. The views here are incredible and it's a nice place to relax too!

If you go to any of these spots and get some a nice shot, tag us in your Instagram/FB post or email us the picture, we'd love to see your perspective! As always, we hope you enjoyed this post and if you have any questions about these spots or anything at all, don't hesitate to leave a comment or shoot us an email at hi@focusforwardmedia.com 

Have a great day!
