Escape to New England

Founded in 1709, Wickford is a historic town on the shores of Rhode Island. It's an enchanting slice of New England, with locals peddling it as "Nantucket at a fraction of the cost". For a quintessential New England experience, don't miss the chance to stay in a heritage-listed home. From elegant waterfront estates to beautifully restored clapboard cottages, Wickford vacation rentals unlock access to some of North Kingstown's best properties. Head down the cape and you'll find a string of beaches that are perfect for swimming, sunbathing and sandcastle building.

Step back in time on historic Main Street

Wickford is one of the East Coast's prettiest villages, dotted with beautiful New England architecture and home to one off the largest collections of 18th-century houses in the USA. Main Street is lined with antique emporiums, art galleries and flower-strewn gardens. You'll soon fall under its spell, so why not stay local with Wickford vacation rentals in the heart of the village? One of the best ways to enjoy the coastline is by boat. Scenic cruises showcase the 10 lighthouses that dot Narragansett Bay, as well as Newport Harbor, Jamestown Bridge, Fort Adams and a host of historic oceanfront mansions.

Go organic on Casey Farm

Overlooking Narragansett Bay, Casey Farm has been raising crops for centuries. Today you can tour the grounds, learn about the organic movement and visit the graveyard where 6 generations of Caseys are buried. In summer, the Casey Farm Market is a great place to pick up fresh produce from across the region. Housed in a former naval base, the Quonset Air Museum is well worth a visit. It was once a base for Naval Construction Battalions known as the Seabees, though today it's filled with missiles, vintage planes and thousands of aviation artifacts.

Sun-drenched days in Wickford

Wickford is at its best in the summer, with warm weather and plenty of sunshine to soak up. Crowds soar from Memorial Day to Labor Day, when flocks of families descend on Rhode Island. Planning a summer vacation? Wickford treats everyone to a warm welcome, including Fido. The town loves pups, with most shops welcoming dogs with a bowl of water and a handful of treats. You'll also be spoilt for choice with pet-friendly Wickford vacation rentals. If you dream of windswept walks on the beach and cozy nights by the fire, winter is a great time to visit.

Beach-hopping in Wickford Cove

Wickford is perched on the western side of Narragansett Bay, around 30 minutes from Providence. The town is anchored by a bustling marina set on Wickford Cove. If you're craving a beach scene, the nearby towns of Narragansett and Point Judith are both fringed by beautiful sandy beaches. North Kingstown Town Beach is also an easy walk from the village, with golden sand and a grassy foreshore. For a glimpse of the local ecosystem, head to the Davis Memorial Wildlife Refuge. The wetlands sit on the Hunt River and are a haven for birdlife.
