Been there several times for fun and food. A few nice shops but picturesque village. Sad news is the Sweet Indulgence is moving out at end of year. This will be a huge negative for the village, as this place is a destination. Relaxing nearby...More

Visit Pawtucket Village and enjoy the beauty of Upper Narragansett Bay as well as the cordial environment among the shops and restaurants. Pawtucket Village has it all.

This tiny inlet off of Narragansett Bay has darling shops and restaurants. I highly recommend O'Rourke's Pub for a great bar, comfort food and view. The short ribs with mashed potatoes are the best!

Nothing real interesting unless you want to see the dirty Pawtuxet dump into Narragansett bay. Maybe it is because I live nearby but the restaurants are overpriced and lousy. Parking is a problem and the people are mostly stuck up yuppies...nothing to see here

We went for the food truck festival. It's a very pretty park right on the water. The village itself is historical and very nice, good places to eat and easy to get to.

There are two stores, I believe, about 2 blocks from the bridge - to the north. I can't recommend either though, because I haven't been inside them. Anyhow, it's nice to walk along the street and see what's what!
