This is the ultimate New England village, with red-white-and-blue striped lines in the road, an annual burning of the Gaspee (which pre-dated the Boston tea party), and a liquor store in which the owners dress like Santa and Mrs. Claus. I mean, seriously. My favorite places to visit are The Elephant Room, which makes phenomenal crepes, and Sweet Indulgences, which... More

This is one of the older sections of RI. Filled with historical events such as the sinking of the Gaspee. This is where the American Revolution really began. They sank a British ship, not dump a load of tea! (No offense to offend our brave Boston Patriots) If you go, be sure to visit O'Rourke's and if its warm eat... More

A beautiful part of Cranston, RI were you feel a small town vibe. Located on a river the small area has formal restaurants, casual restaurants, ice cream shops and bakeries. A nice location to visit for lunch or dinner to relax and unwind.

A cute little seaside village at the mouth of the Pawtuxet RIver. Historic in that the Roger Williams was involved in its founding and historic for the battle of the HMS Gaspee, a 'shot' fired against the British a few years before the Boston Tea Party. Nice shops and pubs and restaurants. Walkable. Fun for adults and little ones. A... More

Pawtuxet Village is cool. There are good restaurants and ice cream shops and a lovely waterfront. I especially like O'Rourkes for a great burger or corned beef sandwich. We enjoy Wednesday nights at the waterfront for music in the summer.
