I love my home town. It was amazing, the whole town was loving and caring for each other. There were a lot of small little restaurants and houses that would be an amazing sight. Everyone in the town was hard working, almost everyone knew each other and helped each other out.

Ashaway is a wonderful small town in Rhode island. It's very peaceful , quiet, and quaint. Everyone is very neighborly and pull together and form a strong community. The town has a wonderful elementary school with a great staff. It's a wonderful place to live with a family.
During the winter season, everything around town is very calm and well-kept. While during the summer, there is a wide-variety of activities to take part in.
