This charming, historic town is only about 20 minutes from Providence, but it offers a much slower, relaxed pace of life. Enjoy organic, locally grown veggies from the Goodwin Brother's Farm Stand, which has served the community for decades. Stroll the quiet streets to enjoy beautifully preserved New England architecture that dates back to the 19th century, as well as many old mills that are still located alongside the Blackstone River. North Smithfield is also home to Rhode Island's last remaining drive-in theater, an authentic 1950's gem that shows both current films and beloved classics. If you enjoy spending time outdoors, this area offers a lot of lush greenery and public parks, as well as great fishing, kayaking, and boating opportunities on the Slatersville Reservoir. For all your shopping needs, head to the Dowling Village Mall to find major retailers like Target, Macy's, and Aldi. If you're looking for a laidback lifestyle within close proximity of Providence, North Smithfield has it all.
