The Best Thing About Warwick

Safety First

Warwick is considered one of the safest places to live not just in Rhode Island, but in the entire country. Crime rates are well below the national average, and many residents report feeling safe walking alone at night. Furthermore, you get easy access to the rest of New England and the New York due to the city’s centralized location. That means you experience all the best parts of northeastern life while residing in a safe enclave. Families in particular love to call Warwick home due to its safety and cleanliness, and young urban professionals like it for the work opportunities.

The Worst Thing About Warwick

Density & Noise

Warwick is the third largest city in the second smallest state in the union, and its population density is high relative to its size. This, combined with its centralized location in the state, can lead to highly congested roads and a claustrophobic feeling for locals. Warwick is home to the state’s largest airport, and as such, many residents report lots of overhead noise.

Warwick is home to a wide variety of activities for a wide range of ages. The bar and brewery scene is some of the best in the state, and numerous high quality restaurants call the city home. From Iggy’s Boardwalk for family friendly atmosphere and eats, to The Shanty’s experimental cuisine, to Top of the Bay’s immaculate rooftop seafood experience, foodies will find lots to love in Warwick. The city also boasts beaches and historical sites galore, in part due to Warwick being home to the first true battle of the American Revolution, the Gaspee Affair. A variety of work opportunities also await you in Warwick, with industries ranging from retail to hospitality to healthcare to banking to local government. And with Providence only twelve miles away, it is an easy and manageable daily commute to the state capital.
