    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.
    Review Ashaway
    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.
    There is very little crime that takes place in this area
