What Cheer?

 

When Roger Williams crossed the Seekonk River to found Providence, the Narragansetts greeted him with “What cheer, netop?” meaning "What news of good cheer do you bring friend?" The phrase “What Cheer” has become quintessentially Rhode Island: you can find it on street signs and storefronts, and it’s even the motto of Providence. Whether you are coming in just for the day or making a weekend of it, we invite you to explore the charm of this city we've made our home.
