Walking Tour Guides
The City of Warwick, which can trace its origins to 1642, has a number of significant homes, sites, and villages that should prove interesting to tourists and residents alike. As the city is increasingly active as the "Crossroads of Southern New England", its airport, hotels, and restaurants are now well known and attracting visitors like never before.
With this increase, many want to know what Warwick has to offer. The city has responded with excellent guides to accommodations and attractions. Two very fine walking tour guides of the villages of Apponaug and Pawtuxet, have paved the way with interesting historical insights concerning the city’s attractions and examples of its rich heritage.
As the area beyond these villages contains many architectural gems from the 17th through 20th centuries, the city also presents a city-wide description of its villages and historic homes -- Historic Warwick, A guide to Warwick’s Historic Homes . Hopefully, this will cater to a variety of interests. Using a combination of short historical essays on various villages, descriptions of historic homes, sites and buildings, these booklets will be of value to tourists, school children and Rhode Island residents as it conveys a sense of what makes Warwick a special place.
