Southeast Providence County

Though comprised of only two municipalities contiguous only by water, the Southeast Providence County Region features substantial transportation options and jobs comparable to the other larger geographic regions.

The region hugs the southern portion of Providence to its east and west forming two largely suburban centers of their more populous neighbor – Providence. Each City is rich in character and have similar affordability and wages, as evidenced below. Both have access to Narragansett Bay, with East Providence featuring a longer shoreline. Each city also feature village centers well-known for their historic character, including Pawtuxet in Cranston (also bordering Warwick), and Riverside and Rumford in East Providence.
