Welcome to Pawtuxet Village, Rhode Island
Pawtuxet Village is the epitome of waterfront, New England charm. Nestled right on the line between Cranston and Warick, this walkable community is a “hidden gem’ along the Narragansett Bay. Rather than the bustling area of Garden City Cranston, Pawtuxet Village maintains a tight-knit, homey feel to it. Its streets are lined with quaint shops, sought-after restaurants and historic homes dating back to the 1600’s. Travel north on Broad Street and you enter the Edgewood section of Cranston, another highly desirable neighborhood that is more residential and walking distance from the Village.
