Even though I’m now coming at you live from London, England, I’m still eager to share with you some photos from a town near my beautiful home in New England (as if I haven’t already done that enough).
This sea-faring village called Wickford, Rhode Island is perched on the Wickford Cove and is pretty popular in the summer because of it’s scenic views, restaurants and boutiques (and thank God they finally got a cute little cafe).
Wickford’s most popular spot is its Main Street, which is where all of the restaurants and boutiques lie. However, my favorite thing about Wickford is its display of 100% authentic New England architecture.
I truly believe Wickford showcases New England-style architecture in its most pure form. This style of architecture is absolutely beautiful, in my opinion. Furthermore, it speaks of a prominent part in our country’s history: when colonists were colonizing the United States.
What else goes with an area that dates back to the 1700s? A super old graveyard. In the day time: cool. In the night: creepy. These crumbling graveyards are a huge part of New England’s identity.
Oh yeah, then there are the shops and restaurants, too. You definitely won’t be finding any Topshops or H&Ms on this street though; chain stores are nonexistant. Wickford is a great place to find unique crafts and art.
One of my favorite stores on the street is definitely Gossip; it’s a Free People galore, I tell you!
