Hi, I am planning on moving back to eastern New England in the coming year to be closer to family. While I am not originally from R.I., I have been looking at the state quite extensively, and stumbled across Pawtuxet Village the other day.
Overall, it seems very nice and up my alley based on what I can tell from internet search. And also a bit different than other parts of Cranston that I have visited (which were more typical suburbia). PV looks fairly walkable, and from the pictures seems to have that subdued charm of an old coastal New England village.
I plan to visit the area in a few months, but was hoping to get some local opinions on it first. How would you describe the general "vibe"? Is it relatively safe and quiet? Any glaring issues to be aware of? Etc.
Ideally, I would love to find an area that is walkable, but not too bustling. Looking to rent initially and stay under $2000 for a 1-2BR, which seems quite doable in this area. Nearby parks or bike trails would be an added perk, though I realize no place is perfect.
Does the area near Pawtuxet Village fit that bill at all? Also, please feel free to suggest other areas in R.I. that might be worth considering based on my description. I currently work from home, so have a reasonable degree of flexibility in terms of location. Thanks in advance
