While most Rhode Islanders are out drinking up the joys of beach life this summer, Providence Mayor Angel Taveras is trying to lure them back into the city in a series of television and radio ads that started running last week.
The ads highlight popular tourism spots in the capital city and try to allay people’s concerns about parking, saying:
“Whoever said there’s no parking in downtown Providence needs to come visit us. We have over 15,000 parking spaces. The city’s in bloom this summer with fabulous restaurants, concerts and more.”
