Wakefield is a small village located within the town limits of South Kingstown in Rhode Island. In 1996 the Wakefield village center was inducted on the the US National Regrister of Historic Places. This area is now referred to as the Wakefield Historic District and includes Main Street, and the area between Belmont Avenue and Columbia Street.
There is not neccessarily a ton to do directly in Wakefield, since the district is only a few streets big. Although visitors should definitely wander around and shop, or simply just admire the beautiful historic area. However, there are plenty of other things to do nearby Wakefield and South Kingstown. For example, Newport, Rhode Island is less than 30 minutes away in the car. Newport is highly regarded for its incredibly well preserved Colonial architecture and for its rich sailing culture. In Newport, visitors can explore the International Tennis Hall of Fame, the former battlements of Fort Adams State Park, or one of the many elaborate mansions around the city, like The Breakers.
Visitors are going to want to target late spring or early summer for a visit to Wakefield. The crowds and temperatures won't be too overwhelming, and they can also head to Newport and get out on the water on a sailboat.
The long standing breakfast tradition at the Bluebird Cafe, is an unbeatable eating experience in Wakefield. Come for the history, but definitely stay for the massive biscuits. For some added flavor, have a meal at El Fuego Mexican Grill. As the name suggests the food is fire, but there is also a good feel to the restaurant's atmosphere, which makes it great for families.
