Wickford/North Kingstown, Rhode Island

Wickford, Rhode Island is situated on Wickford Cove, home to marinas and pleasure boats. Its calm waters are ideal for kayakers. Swans and ducks float under the Wickford Bridge in the center of the village. The historic 1850's Avis Block of shops is longtime home to Beauty and the Bath and Different Drummer. Shops line the main thoroughfare which is Brown St., though there are also shops on Main and West Main Streets. The Grateful Heart, Midnight Sun, Teddy Bearskins, Green Ink and Mermaid's Purl are among the shops. Antique and home decor shoppers will enjoy Yes! Gallery, Wickford Village Antiques & Collectibles and Kitchen & Table of Wickford, as well as Eclectic Bungalow. Dine at Tavern by the Sea to soak up the Wickford Cove views. Arts, antiques and boutiques next to boating, kayaking and colonial architecture are the allure of Wickford. It is easy to see how this quaint village inspired our website.
