Pawcatuck is a great town that borders Westerly, RI. There is not much to do in Pawcatuck itself but it is easy to access beaches such as Watch Hill and there are many things to do in both Westerly, RI and the other city, Mystic, CT. I would like to see Pawcatuck increase its population in the 20-25 age demographic and increase the amount of shops and restaurants in the town.

Nice little town. Tourist area in the summer. Young families moving in, retirees moving out. Close to Pfizer, Electric Boat, and the Casinos.
I really like how Pawcatuck is such a close knit community. Whenever you need help, a neighbor is there or the community center.
