Wickford, RI is a small village located in the town of North Kingstown. You can find Wickford on the west side of the Narragansett Bay, just a short drive from Newport. Every July Wickford comes alive for the Wickford Art Festival, a popular event that attracts well-known artists and art lovers from all over the United States and from around the world. To stay in a Wickford bed and breakfast or Wickford inn during this festival, make sure to reserve a room early. Throughout the rest of the year, Wickford is simply a quiet town by the sea. You can take a long walk along the shoreline, and if the weather permits, take a dip in the sea. Later, spend an afternoon with the family on the famous Main Street, with waterfront shopping for apparel, jewelry and unique gifts. Stop for lunch at the Beach Rose Café for a small bite to eat. Your B&B stay will be complete with a seafood dinner at Tavern by the Sea.
