FarmCoast New England is close to and immediately surrounded by many other interesting places to visit. Newport and the communities of Aquidneck Island are just across the Sakonnet River, although driving to Newport from Tiverton Four Corners can be approximately a half hour.
The East Bay communities of Bristol, Warren, and Barrington in Rhode Island are nearby and include many interesting historical sites. Fall River and New Bedford flank both sides of FarmCoast New England. Both cities were prominent during the era of tall ships, whaling, and the era of the China Trade and host many historical places to visit.
We hope that linking to these neighboring attractions will help you plan for future excursions to FarmCoast New England.
