Get around[edit]

If you are visiting this area you will need to rent a car as most places to go are far from walking distance from each other. Although it is a beautiful area to ride a bike, if this is your plan then bring your bike from home because the closest place to get a bike is in Westerly, at Ray Willis Toys and Bikes:[dead link] +1 401-596-1045.


If you are looking for shows, there isn't much to see, but if you are looking to see fall foliage or beautiful rivers and ponds this is a good place to go. Go to Crandall Park, on route 3, and sit down and enjoy the scenery. Take a ride down the road to Misquamicut Beach and enjoy some fun in the sun.


They are many rivers and ponds that you can experience great fishing, kayaking, and canoeing. Fish the Chapman Pond, for pike and bass, or kayak down the Pawtucket River or Ashaway River. To find a guide for where to find more of these rivers go to the chamber of commerce.
