Destination guide

If you adore the days of yore, you'll love Warwick

Want to know a fun fact about this long-standing colonial city? Warwick was traded for Wampum (shell beads) in 1642. Later, the Gaspee Affair helped ignite the Revolutionary War, adding to the area's incredible history. Those who adore the days of yore will find loads of landmarks and museums to explore. Speaking of exploring, you might also want to wander Warwick's 39 miles of coastline while you take in spectacular views of Narragansett Bay. It's only 12 miles from Providence, but then again, this is the smallest state in the U.S., so nothing is very far from any Warwick vacation rental.

Things to do

Warwick's got miles of coastline with so much character

Aquaphiles, you'll be swimming with delight at the area's coastal parks. Harbor Lights Marina and Golf Course and Goddard Memorial State Park both have some great golfing, plus boating, water sports and fishing. And Warwick City Park has bike paths, baseball fields and beaches. Let the kids walk on the wild side at Roger Williams Park Zoo or catch a concert at Dunkin' Donuts Center in Providence. And the Historical Warwick Museum of Art might give you a laugh, if you go for its weekly improv show.

Activities

Little Rhodey's got a whole lotta coastline

Many Warwick vacation rentals will place you right on this cool coastline bustling with activity. The picturesque coves, beaches and marinas on Narragansett Bay are perfect places for hiking, fishing, sailing, lazing and gazing. Then you have colonial monuments and landmarks like the area's historical Underground Railroad stop. Soak in the New England glory in the center of this charming town, where there are art galleries, theaters and great bakeries. Put on that lobster bib and chow down on some New England clam chowdah and crab cakes, plus the shellfish for which Little Rhodey is famous.

Weather

Fall in love with autumn in Rhode Island

New England's known for its wide variety of weather, from crisp Autumn days to wicked Nor'easters. Warwick is no exception. During the blissful summers, you'll enjoy temps in the 80s, with rain storms to break the heat. The fall foliage on this tree-filled coast will steal your breath. Most visitors come during June to November, for all of those reasons. Prices and temps are a lot lower in the chilly winter. With January lows in the 20s and frequent snowfalls, you're wise to wear a hat and a warm jacket if you're here during winter.

Natural features

The best and biggest estuary in New England

Many Warwick vacation rentals are on the waterfront, and here's another fun fact: a third of Rhode Island is water, and part of that is New England's largest estuary, Narragansett Bay. If you want to dive in and explore wildlife, inlets, marshes and coves, these coastal lowlands are a haven for all kinds of animals, birds and marine life. Minks, beavers and foxes roam the area, and migrating birds and ducks feast on the shellfish beds. You'll also have a whale of time on the water watching for humpbacks, belugas and dolphins.
