West warwick is a small town, everyone knows each other and the people here are friendly. There are many events hosted for local residents during the summer time and holidays. My favorite part of the year is the Christmas lighting they do in the very tiny downtown we have. It's almost magical the whole town gets together for this moment to wait for the giant tree to lite, absolutely beautiful! One thing I'd like to see change in west warwick is a little more diversity.

West Warwick is not awful, but not great either. Some areas are cute and quaint. Not the nicest part by far of Rhode Island...Also not a suburb of providence. I did not go to school here so I cannot give my first-hand experience, but from what I heard it is not the best school system. Still better than some neighboring schools however. It is one of the cheaper parts of Rhode Island, but there is not much to do in West Warwick. Close to providence and centrally located in Rhode Island. But does not have a wild nightlife or even high-end restaurants.
I lived in Rhode Island when I was younger. I was basically born here. Then I moved to another state. I recently moved back about 2 months ago. I was always in Providence or Cranston. I live in West Warwick with my friend who is basically like my sister. I love how quiet it is. I love how everything is close, like stores and restaurants. I feel safe around my neighborhood. I love it because I live with my niece and nephew and safety is important.
