Barrington Rhode Island is a small white collar town with beautiful bayside views, quaint downtown, and has one of the best public school systems in the state. Diversity could be expanded. Lack of nightlife
Safe neighborhoods, clean, great school system! Friendly people, close to the water, lots of shops and restaurants, close to the city.
I have grown up in Barrington and currently work within the town. It is a quiet town however it always was safe. I found the school system to be outstanding and would recommend it to anyone
I like that Barrington is filled with friendly people. I have been living here since I was little and am privileged to live in such a great suburban neighborhood. I have been given a great education in Barrington. Although it is a small town, I have made many friends over the years and continue to do so. I hope to raise my kids here when I am older. It is a great, fun, small town filled with wonderful people. It's a great community.
Very quaint, kind town. People drive slowly and real-estate is incredibly expensive, but the schools are incredible and everyone is smiling. It's also filled with beautiful property that sits right on the water.
Barrington is a quiet, friendly, clean, and family-oriented town. It hosts countless neighborhoods and is one of the best school systems in Rhode Island. With plenty of nature (woods, ponds), a golf course, soccer fields, the East Bay bike path, and a town beach, you can't go wrong. Most people in town are like-minded; go-getters who want the best for their families. The community is one of the most involved that I have seen. Parent-teacher organizations are a strength, and the resources that are provided to children are seemingly limitless, which may be why the school system is so good. There is a solid foundation of support in town, from every direction. As far as entertainment goes, there are shops, two fine wine and spirits stores, and plenty of restaurants to eat at. The town library is lovely and right behind it is a town playground. This town is a family town and is to be adored by all who join the community.
All the houses are different on our street, some are a lot nicer than others. But for the most part everyone has decent or above average sized yards.
When we first moved to the area a lot of the neighbors were stuck up, but over the last 5 years most of them have moved and we have better neighbors now.
Due to the fact it's a small town there is not much crime and it's safe to walk alone at any time in the day.
Barrington is a lovely town with a great education.
The safety in this area is second to none. There are rarely ever any violent crimes, and if they were to occur our police force is quickly responsive and always visible prompting a quick reaction to any situation.
Barrington, Rhode Island is a beautiful place to live because of its small, friendly community, great school system and overall atmosphere in the town. Living in a place with about sixteen thousand residents allows you to make friends easily as well as continue to meet more and more people. These friends are people that you see everyday, at school, at the local coffee shop and just around town. Living in a community like this where people know each other and are extremely friendly makes life more comfortable and fun. Once making a lot of great, like mined friends you are given the opportunity to learn in a nationally recognized public school system. All the way through the ranks of Barrington's public school system, from elementary to high school, gives students all of the resources they need to be successful as well as countless opportunities to learn outside of the class room. Ultimately, living in Barrington, RI has been a great experience, one that I would not trade for anything. The community is always continuing to grow and prosper which makes me excited to have had the oppurtunity to live there.
The surrounding towns are not as safe and there are home invasions.
I love how quiet it is and the bike path is a great way to release stress and see how beautiful New England is.
Not much abandoned property. Houses are very nice, most residents keep up with their yards quite well.
Everyone makes an effort to support and get to know each other and almost everyone is respectful and friendly.
Incredible education system

This neighborhood is a great place to live. Schools are great.
This neighborhood has lots of children and dog-walkers. It feels very safe and friendly. It is a great location, with schools and services nearby.
The cost of living is high in this area and the winter weather is brutal. It is tough to get older here.
