A district on the National Register of Historic Places, this village has beautiful open spaces and a handful of stores and restaurants.
Sweet Cakes (1227 Kingstown Rd.) is a bakery with scrumptious desserts that also serves breakfast and lunch daily. Whalers Brewing (1174 Kingstown Rd.) offers locally made craft beer inside its on-site taproom. The Flatts (501 High St.) is a casual BBQ spot that serves mouthwatering sandwiches and ribs.
If you like to bike, head to the William C. O’Neill Bike Path (1 Railroad Ave.) commonly known as the South County Bike Path.

Other trails to note include Old Mountain Field (Kingstown Rd.) which loops around Indian Run Reservoir; the eight trails maintained by the South Kingstown Land Trust (sklt.org), and the trail at Trustom Pond Wildlife Refuge (1040 Matunuck School House Rd.) which offers pond and ocean views.
