Located in Kent County, the city actor James Woods calls home is simultaneously rich in history - several major events in the American Revolution occurred here - and altogether a city of today. One leg of a short road trip could take you to visit the storied streets of historic Pawtuxet Village, an important site of one of the precipitating events of the Revolutionary War, while the next leg could return you to the energetic hustle and bustle of the quest for the perfect deal at one of Warwick's high-end shopping centers - the largest in the state. Another short drive puts the sand of South County's beaches between your toes. The variety of experience is one of the most surprising benefits of life in Warwick.
