A hidden gem! When you visit Smith’s Castle it is like stepping back in time. The tour is fascinating including lots of local and historic trivia. The grounds are on the water and beautiful for walking around on a nice day. Include a visit to the quaint village of Wickford for restaurants and shopping.

I went to the strawberry festival and it was great. There wasn't strawberry picking but they did have strawberry shortcake and other food. The pony ride and face painting was fun they also had old school games for the kids. Great family place with tons of activities throughout the year. Parking isn't great when it's busy.
