Coastal towns in Rhode Island - HELP

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning on moving from South Florida to New England in a few years. By the time we move, our son will be 4 years old (just in time to start school). We love New England coastal town living and small town community living.

We've narrowed it down to 2 states - Rhode Island or Connecticut. We've looked into which towns have good public schools, good housing and low crime rate, etc., so we have an idea of which towns we'd like to explore. But we are trying to be open minded and explore all our options in Rhode Island & Connecticut.

On that note, my husband & I have decided to take 7-10 days to drive down the coast of Rhode Island in early April 2008. We realize there is alot of coast to be seen in this short time, but it is all the time we have. In 2009 we will explore Connecticut.

This is a big decision, so we don't just want to follow a bunch of "relocating to Rhode Isand" information from real estate agents.

I'm hoping someone can provide us with ideas, suggestions or recommendations on coastal towns that might fit what we're looking for (i.e., good neighborhood/town to raise a child, low crime rate, on the coast, moderately priced homes, nice downtown area/main street with shops and restaurants --- we don't want to be in the middle of nowhere either).

THANK YOU!!!!
