Pawtucket continues to draw many to the city due its diversity, cultural and artistic atmosphere, and wide variety of attractions.

The city of Pawtucket, Rhode Island is the state's fourth-largest city. Providence lies just slightly south of Pawtucket, making for an easy commute between the two cities.

Pawtucket started thriving during the American Industrial Revolution,when Samuel Slater, of Slater Mills, implemented the first fully-mechanized cotton-spinning mill in the country. As a result, the mill was recognized as the “birthplace of the American Industrial Revolution.

The McCoy Stadium continues to be a main attraction in Pawtucket. Pawtucket has an active interest in the arts and an arts festival is held annually in the city.
