Just 32 miles from Providence and 18 miles from Newport, Wakefield is a beautiful coastal community that offers tranquil living with close proximity to the arts, academia, fine cuisine, and the attractions of Providence. The University of Rhode Island is also just a short distance away. The natural beauty of Wakefield can be enjoyed while golfing, boating, fishing, whale watching, or swimming and wading at public and private beaches. Historic Main Street is intriguing with its quaint 19th- and 20th-century buildings, shops, historic homes, churches, restaurants, and historic inns. Shopping on this street takes you back in time, but if you prefer, you can step ahead to one of the modern shopping malls.
