"Rhode Island's colonial-era gem" Wickford by mikelisaanna

Wickford Travel Guide: 55 reviews and 127 photos

Wickford is a gem of small town along the water in Rhode Island, and is one of the best-preserved colonial-era towns in New England. It has dozens of old historic houses, churches and other buildings dating back to the 1700s and early 1800s. It also has numerous interesting little shops along its two main streets. Wickford is small enough to be able to toured on foot, so park your car and get out and enjoy a stroll around the town. It will make for a relaxing afternoon and is a good antidote if you af suffering from the tourist crowds and traffic in nearby Newport.

    Guess you enjoyed Wickford as much as I do each time I go. Great collection of many things...nautical, architectural, and commercial. Just finished redesigning my Wickford page w/ lots of new pics. Hope you can stop by.
