Warwick is the second largest city in Rhode Island. It was the site of what is regarded as one of the seminal actions leading to the Revolutionary War, the burning of the HMS Gaspee. Today Warwick is enjoyed for its 39 miles of beautiful coastline with several fresh and saltwater beaches alongside marinas, waterfront restaurants and historic lighthouses.
Warwick offers many educational, recreational and cultural opportunities. The Warwick Neck area offers all of the amenities of top-notch Rhode Island life, including a marina, a country club, and the picturesque Narragansett Bay. Unique to the village of Potowomut is Goddard Memorial State Park which attracts thousands of visitors each year. With facilities that include a 9-hole golf course, a horse barn where the public can rent and ride horses, a beach with bathhouse, open fields, and a carousel building for functions, this spot is a local favorite. Cowesett is practically the picture postcard of an idyllic, suburban lifestyle, with proximity to the attractive scenery of Greenwich Bay. Pawtuxet Villiage is the hub between Cranston, Providence, and Warwick; the village remains a charming community of Colonial and Victorian homes gathered together by the waterfront.
Convenience and accessibility are trademarks of the Warwick area, being situated at the center of the state's super-highway system. Recently added for the ease of travel is an MBTA Train stop at Warwick's T.F. Green Airport, providing a direct route to Boston. Additionally, Warwick boasts some of the top private schools in the state, including Bishop Hendricken. Housing varies by area and offers options for every lifestyle.
